    Only leaked photos of their replacement has been seen on the net. Personally I think the new itouch is the one to beat. We shall see quite a few emulators in the next 6 months.
    What do you all think M$ will do?

    That thing is a dead horse! DRM loaded, HDCP monitor needed to watch HD disk.

    I support Apple cause of there push away from this stuff.

    If Zune2 is a good competitor to the touch then that's a good thing.. forces apple to get better to say in the game.

    Not sure I'd get one - Microsoft aren't exactly known for their cool hardware, unlike apple.. it'll probably explode in your pocket :p

    Zune Touch ... no. They didn't copy the click wheel.

    He didn't say that. He said that Apple is trying to get away from DRM and MS is clearly not.

    apple is trying to get away from drm?? LMAO, since when apple has content that they don't care to protect?

    at least MS is honest.

    its not hardware i'm worried about, its software. in my opinion microsoft sucks at software and apple is probably the best software company i have seen (my opinion). that is what is wrong with the zune..software.

    MS is honest about what? That you will need five more apps to use this feature? On and please remember we reserve the right to modify it without asking you!

    Then I guess those DRM-free iTunes-tracks I purchased don't really exist? That's too bad, since I really like Pink Floyd....

    That was the first thing I added. Every Pink Floyd album I got. The first is always Momentary Lapse Of Reason:)

    Im really tired of people abusing the word "clone", in your definition, im certain all human beings are clones of each other, people, get a life.

    Apple isn't superior in developing or QC, apple is only superior in two things
    1. design
    2. PR.

    I thought DRM free music is only a fraction? and most shows, movies and musics from ITMS are still DRMed? Apple made them free recently?

    I love my Zune. Its been very good to me. And if Microsoft releases a touch competitor which does everything the iPodT does and has more space, I'll definitely look into it.
