Zune battery can hit 14hrs

Microsoft employee Cesar "LoveFoxxx" Menendez is saying that the Zune's battery can last as long as 13 hours, or even 14 hours with wireless turned off. This is roughly equivalent to the current 30GB iPod, but is perhaps more impressive because of the Zune's three-inch screen. Strict measures were needed to reach 14 hours, however: the test Zune was set to loop 128Kbps WMA files the entire time, and power-saving tactics included shutting off the EQ and avoiding menus or pictures. Battery life can drop as low as four hours when viewing video or pictures, Menendez admits.
