The recent Zune Update a month or so ago added the ability to track your listening habits and reward you for them. Think of achievements on the Xbox 360, except not pedantic ones like listen to every artist that released a single in 2003. These badges are actually quite nice, and display on your Zune Card if you do whatever it is enough times in the previous month. A thousand plays isn't all that hard if you're sitting at your desk all day like us. No cheating, cause we know you'd just leave your player on repeat and turn your speakers off.

@92BuickLeSabre: its not a reward system per se, but a means to find the folks who share the same tastes in music as you do. Its just a way to shrink the Socical....make it more streamlined for folks to meet or to spark a convo.
