One thing that Zune software has never done since its initial availability in 2006 is play nice with Macs. With Windows Phone 7 on the horizon, this may be about to change. Oded Ran, an executive at Microsoft, tweeted today that Zune software will be made available for Mac users to sync with WP7.

The tweet has since been removed, but it shows some progress towards the Zune and Windows Phone 7 devices being Apple-friendly. This makes a lot of sense; there's no reason to alienate a chunk of your potential user base when you're trying to elbow your way back into the smartphone market.
