Redmond, WA - Sep 16, 2008 - Earlier this month, the Radio Currents reported that new Zune media players would be able to tag songs directly through their built-in FM tuners. Users can then directly download the song when the player enters a Wi-fi hotspot.

Microsoft, the maker of the Zune, has worked a deal with McDonald's to allow the media players to connect through the restaurants' Wi-fi to complete the download. There are 9,800 participating restaurants participating in the agreement.
