oh Mircrosoft what is wrong with you? are so dense to not know that the way you have designed the Zune would amount to failure. then again, your a multi-billion dollar company who doesnt really need to create a MP3 player to make money, you have so many other ways. I guess that is why you let the Zune suck as much as it does. not to mention you own nearly half of apple. you are already getting your mp3 money from them.
So, who is winning the war? Check the stock market for the past 5 years.
iPod + Zune = Shitty MP3 Players
GET A ZEN!
OH! Microsoft is sooooo desperate!
I had plans to buy one of those, but due to some wii reasons i never did. I just might do so now that they are a bit cheaper.
As far as iPods, i will never buy one simply because I hate iTunes plus iPods dont even have FM radio. And Zunes? Well I'll have to see one myself to judge.
Well this isnt a review so much as a rant. I actually own a Zune (the brown one which looks much better in person) and most of this article it is compete crap. I installed the software on both XP and Vista (64-bit) and didnt have any trouble with the install. They sync went fine and the device works nicely, plus the big screen and radio are nice.
I mean the guy doesnt even review the features. Plus I fail to see how MS points make it easier to change the price. He is aware that you can charge different amounts of money, yes?
This article is crap from an Mac fanboi and is nothing more then FUD, go read a real review.
I'm not sure what to make of the review. I've owned the Zune for about a month now and haven't run into any of the issues that the author wrote about. I'm not talking about the WiFi feature, I wasn't expecting it to be able to wirelessly download songs since the package never said anything about that anyway...since I've only owned mine for 1 month, I was wondering what you other Zune owners out there think of the product?
Well I got one for christmas and the only thing that I didnt like was the fact that it deleted all the preloaded content as soon as I synced with with my PC, and that you cant do anything while its connected. I would also like Divx/Xvid support, which I hear they are adding, whethers its native or just converts is another question.
Mac all the way baby
have had my Ipod for just about 2 years now, and love it! no complaints, no problems!
what is up with the stupid complaint about no FM radio on an MP3 player?
why would you want a radio?
zunes are good, they are a lil too bulky though, good idea, good size screen, and a fantastic idea with the bluetooth thing. bluetooth songs to other zunes !
I've had two iPods die on me in 11 months for no reason. They're not built to last. I couldn't get used to a Zen (my friend had one) and I'm worried about Zune. Problem is I can't go back to 1 CD Walkmans...
Bend me, break me, anyway you need me
as long as I want you baby, it's alright.
I've had a Pod for more than 4 years. Never any problem.
Yes, but what if you want to listen to the BBC news while walking down the street?
iPod Vs. Zune. The both of those players will try to crush each other's reputation while all the other MP3 Players like Creative, and the other ones will just sit on the side lines and laugh.
I find apple/ipod fans unique in their rejection of choice. So you dont want to listen to the radio, but many others do. I maybe people want to be able to flip between their own music/movies/photos and local radio stations. Maybe I want to listen to talk radio, or get the latest news.
I have 4 ipods.
I have one that I use souly as a portable hard drive so I can edit video anywhere.
I have one that I store just video on for long trips on airplanes.
I have one that's just for music since my library is now over 9,000 songs.
I have an iPod shuffle I use for working out because it's so small that I can run with it on and never feel it and it won't get damaged if it gets banged around or dropped.
I'll never geta zune and I don't care about radio.
And can someone please explain the Zune billboards to me? I can't figure out what the fuck any of them mean.
Gentlemen.... Thank you.
I love my ipod - it's the best thing I ever bought next to maybe the mac I got last year when I left the PC behind. No crashes, no freezes just fast, happy computing. I'm not hating on pc's but I love my mac.
