  • Microsoft Zune!

    So I bought this baby tonight and I absolute love it. It's a little hefty, but I think I will get used to it. The screen size alone is worth getting it over the iPod, and the menu system is really easy to understand.

    The connectivity of the thing is what is really neat though. I've already shared files with my friends and what-not. Of course you can connect it directly to the Xbox 360 (meaning I don't have to store tunes on the 360 HDD!).

    Has anyone else bought one of these things? The Zune program is pretty cool as well. $14.99 for unlimited downloads! Yeah there is a small catch, but for $15/month I can literally own thousands of songs, where-as to own each and every CD would cost a lot more than that. If anyone else has bought one I would love to hear what you think.

    Re: Microsoft Zune!

    I really want to like the Zune (I'm a Microsoft fanboy after all), but so far, I can't:
    • Doesn't connect to WMP11. Instead, uses Zune Marketplace (a skinned WMP11 with stripped features).
    • WiFi is pointless. Share songs for what? 3 plays/days? Makes no sense to me. At least allow WiFi sync.
    • My Creative Zen Portable Media Center does the same thing (excluding WiFi).


    In order for the Zune 2.0 to sell well, it needs to bring something fresh to the table.

        I don't own one, but someone said if the song is moved the the root folder it won't be delted. Is this true?

          the way it allows sharing today totally kills it.

          The unlimited downloads thing is nothing new and is available on all wma players that support 'subscription services' which is most current devices.. even my little $50 dollar sandisk I bought for my 8yr old.

            Fry's had a 30 GB Zen for $89. It would have worked with MP11 and that would make me happy.

            iTunes makes me sad.

              iTunes is the ultimate in resource hog. I don't know how many times I would load that thing and my computer would slow to a crawl. Couldn't ever get anything done. The Zune program is no different though, but its a lot easier to use in my opinion.

                I heard the Zune had some problems and bugs, as always I wait for at least the 2nd Generation to even think about buying it
                Three-time MVP Larry Bird, noting that Bryant has been the NBA's premier player for years, told Sports Illustrated's Dan Patrick before this week's announcement, "When someone told me the other day that Kobe hadn't won an MVP trophy, it sort of made me feel like I wanted to throw mine away."

                  The next iPod will set a new standard so Microsoft can copy it. Bill Gates and the evil empire will never get my cash.

                    Well, maybe with the next gen iPod, Apple could design an easier to use program. iTunes blows and its the only thing holding my iPod back.
