    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

    This tool reminds me of work group computing. Only difference is that work group facility is only for a company or group of people but this is for whole internet community.
