The great forces at Microsoft have done a great job of keeping the world of Zune apart from the ecosphere of the Xbox. In retrospect, the was probably not the best idea, and there may be an effort to bridge the gap.
A job listing, found by CNET, indicates that they are looking to hire at least one new person at Microsoft to bring our beloved Zune into the Xbox family. What can we hope for out of this? The job posting gives us a hint:
We are looking for a strong, collaborative designer to work closely with the creative directors to propose innovative designs and content solutions for the Zune Device UI, Zune Xbox and Zune PC Application. You will be part of a small, but experienced, design team working with multiple feature teams to help ship exciting and emotionally engaging products for Zune.
Some are speculating that this will evolve into a Zune service for mobile phones. Whatever direction this goes in, integration between these product lines can only be a good thing. If you have 3+ years of experience in this type of thing, and are willing to move out to Redmond, WA, than this just might be the right opportunity for you!
