Well... I don't mean any of the usual fights between Microsoft and Apple or iPod and Zune, but I've just watched an unboxing on YouTUBE, and the Zune's accessories look so much better. The USB cable has its head covered with that pink plastic, and the headphones are definitely way above the iPod's. I had to change mine because my ears were starting to hurt me after using them for about a month. Not to mention the Zune's are magnetic and come with those buds, and, for the bucks you pay for the 80GB model, you get in-ear headphones. As for the design, there's no comparison: the iPod wins by far. But I'm mainly interested in your opinion related to the accessories. They surely look better on the Zune. Here's the YouTUBE video, but I don't know if this is the last generation zune: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAWGesjguFw Looking forward to your input!
