Zune to support podcasts?

Confirming the suspicions of some, the Zune may already have software support for features unused by the player, notes an enterprising owner. Opened with a program called Resource Hacker, it appears that the zune.exe file contains references to options like sychronized lyrics, and most importantly, podcasting. Unlike Apple's iTunes, there is currently no provision for podcasts in the Zune Windows browser, or in the Zune Marketplace. The information suggests that the next Zune revision may involve significant changes on Microsoft's part. Other uncovered software elements include plug-in support and adjustable aspect ratios.
