    First one is hilarious. Check out my new Shuffle! :D

    EDIT: Excellent work on the links. I didnt know you had to buy 'points' in $5 increments to be able to download music. It gets more hilarious. They have less songs available than iTunes along with no TV shows or movies.

    I'm curious -- are there ANY positive reviews for the Zune from any legitimate sources (ie, not Zune/MS-related sites)? Sure, most of these reviews can point out some actual decent things about the Zune, but in the end they almost all declare you're better off just sticking with the superior iPod.

    Is there ANY review that actually praises a Zune OVER the iPod?

    I've failed to see this in any electronic hardware shops here in sweden - a pretty large town mind you - they (microsoft) is really pushing it to the savvy crowd (no, not even a commercial (apple isn't advertising here either, but atleast the ipod is well known))

    im glad i got some fame here, LOL, Im just tired of this, whatever u wanna say, market will tell in next 6 month, jumping on a product that was out for less than two weeks, and denounce any new feature it has, while attack without personality isn't good, if someone want to do it, Im not gonna stop him, LOL, its like more about reviewer's bias than the facts.

    It really does suck though. Market popularity doesn't mean anything. Look how many people bought Geo Metros... they sold quite well for a few years.

    Look how many people bought PowerMac 5200s. That is generally considered, by far, the worst product Apple ever made.

    I love that review, I was actually going to start a thread on it, when I searched and saw your thread. I think the author (Andy Ihnatko) doesn't come off as an Apple fanboy, he just gives solid reason's why the Zune is a disaster.

    Excellent thread idea - there are so many reviews, its just easier to link 'em all in 1 thread instead of having seperate threads.

    Why would you HAVE TO buy a Zune rather than an iPod?

    So you're saying that if the Zune had OS X support, you'd prefer it over an iPod simply because the Zune has a built-in radio?

    If radio were important to me, I'd much rather spend the extra $50 and get an iPod + the FM radio add-on than having to deal with all of the Zune crap that keeps coming up in media review after media review.

    FM radios have been in MP3 players for years now. One of those MP3 players has got to support OS X. Why don't you buy one of them?

    *Nervous twich develops again, can't help it, shouts I hate txtspeak*

    Shouldn't Microsoft had made the damn thing Plug N Play compatible? :rolleyes:

    I didn't think Microsoft could screw up THIS bad, but wow...

    Welp, good thing I'm getting a 80 GB Black iPod.

    well, FM radio is what i listen most, much more than msuc, but practically, how can I not like a big screen and Wi-Fi? plus, I hate spending extra for same function.

    Im still waiting, either for Zune to spt OSX, or for iPod to update to big screen, Wi-Fi and Build-in Radio,

    To be honest, i think at least one of them is very near.

    what the heck does "spt" mean? why are we using txt spk hr? ths iz nt cl.

    my sentiments exactly.




    i don't agree with all the Zune baiting. it's really showing MR up to be a childish place, and that's not what it should be. just let it tank, and move on. :rolleyes:
