Beware of What Your Zune is Telling People

Zune owners know that there is a terrific community aspect enabled by the device’s wireless features. However, be cautious of how you configure your Zune in the Settings menu.  There is an option to set the level of detail your Zune broadcasts to other Zunes to either “basic” (which essentially just announces your presence) or “detailed.”  The level of detail in the latter mode really made me a bit uncomfortable, so I wanted to make sure that Zune owners were warned about the risk to privacy.  See below for an example of what I’m talking about:

Don’t say you haven’t been been warned!
