I said yesterday that I wouldn’t go back to iTunes and my iPod after going Zune. That doesn’t mean the Zune software is perfect. I miss the iTunes Recently Added folder, for one thing. I have rarely in my life purchased anything but complete albums, but I’ve been discovering so much new music on Pandora that I wanted to purchase several bookmarked songs on Amazon and create a Zune “Singles” Playlist to store them.
To do this in iTunes I would simply go to my Recently Added playlist and drag songs to a playlist. No such ability with Zune. I actually had to go to my Amazon media library, search individually for a Zune tune, then right-click and use the context sensitive popup menu to add to my Singles playlist. Way too crude.
Here’s the new playlist with tonight’s Single purchases. Sorry it’s not copy-and-pastable. I won’t apologize for the image being so small, since I know that most of you geek readers of my blog pump up your screen resolution so much that this sized-text is the norm.
