What the hell is a Zune?

I got the paper today and everyone is advertising the Zune. What is the deal with this new MP3 player? Is it supposed to be better than an Ipod?

yeah I have a feeling that it will propose to be bette rbut not live up to said promise .. ipods arent teh be all and end all but they are pretty damn good

I told my wife that I would get her an Ipod for her birthday but I might have to check out the buzz on this thing first. I like how the screen isn't microscopic.

and it's got FM tuner and something so you can review songs from there or something. I was going to get an ipod, but now I'm thinking about this.

all

though my iRiver has lived up to great performance...I'm not sure I need or want to watch movies on it...only bought an mp3 player to listen to music

BrewHaHa

well crap


html is being a bastard to me.

I hate how the Ipod wont let you put your music on more than a couple computers. I also would like to be able to listen to the radio on whatever mp3 player I buy so... I hope this thing doesn't crash and scratch and suck.

The other day some chump at work called me a "Dune Coon".

OCandCO

Where the hell do you work that people don't get fired for that kind of thing?

I work in an office full of hillbillies.

I think its way to big to compete with an ipod. Maybe its just me but.. size does matter. Haha yes. I like it when my mp3 players are really small.

Omair

ME TOO MFG, BROTHERS!?

OCandCO

What does this have to do with the zune? I think we are officially way off topic.

Startxp05

gibson9

OCandCO

Has anyone bought one of these things yet? Tell me how you like it?

It's gotten pretty mixed reviews so far, with most leaning towards the negative. I'd steer clear for the time being. And I just read this morning that the damn thing isn't even compatible with Windows Vista.

Smooth, Microsoft. Real smooth.

kiddies, don't throw out your ipods. the zune can have the hardware of gods, but if its interface is still (like most windows microsoft product) #$(%)ing useless, it won't be worth a shuffle.

alacyt

Whatever it is, it's not worth the money!

These kids and their gadgets!
