"They say the Zune's an iPod killer. It's all clear now: It's going to bore it to death!"

I was just about the post the exact same quote! Best part of the article =)

However, the interface of Zune looks to be nicely customizable, I wouldn't mind having a background and other features ;)

Brown will be a big color. It is hot in both fashion and home design right now... just wait around a year or so... lots of brown stuff (phones, electronics, cars, etc)...

The Zune looks horrid, but I do loves me some brown.

Something relatively smart out of the Red Star for once. I have to agree with them on the colors part, Apple is very smart for bringing these back. White and black were a snooze. Of course that new black nano would be perfect for me.

I disagree. The color brown I have seen in the pictures is not even close to the brown that *was* in a couple years ago. Think Chocolate Brown with sky blue... very 3 years ago - and the brown Microsoft is using is not even in any color forecasts I have seen. (Note: I am a graphic designer and my partner is an interior designer specializing in, color forecasting.)

On edit: Brown is already done with in the fashion world - high fashion has moved on to the bright colors, dark blue's and blacks of the late 80's.

meh, black would be cool with a white or true black clickweel. gray clickwheel+black nano=stupid, IMO.

Yupp, the Zune brown seems not to be the same as for example the Nokia brown, which has been around for a couple of years now.
