I got the new Zune software and firmware loaded. It now supports wireless syncing with your PC as you charge it!…with the USB cable…that you connect to your PC…with a wire. I didn’t get to try the podcasts yet, but it claims it will only play the podcast once so that you don’t accidentally play it again. Good enough, I guess. I wonder if it remembers where you were within a particular mp3 when you switch playlists or whether I still have to write down the point I was at.
