ZUNE is where it's at, IPODS are so yesterday.

I have bought two ipods
and recently one ZUNE.

I prefer the ZUNE, hands down.

What's the big fancy difference between iPod and Zune?

Inquiring minds need to know!

I own one of those big fancy devices that you pop a cd into and you can carry it along with you wherever you go!!!

quoting from wikipedia "It has been repeatedly reported that Microsoft employees, (Zune 'lobbyists,') have been going to forums and websites promoting the Zune, while at the same time, attacking its competitors. Microsoft has not made any comment on this as of December, 2006."

are you one of these people?

To be honest, nothing can compete with my ipod. It may freeze ALL the time, refuse to work for hours at a time and randomly loose songs off it.. but it looks just so damn cool!

I listen to a lot of fm

mostly public radio (which is hard to tune in on my home reciever)
the fm tuner on ZUNE (included) does a great job

as good or better than the tuner on my new volvo

i have thousands of mp3s and this is the format on ZUNE

the screen is great, very clear and bigger,

the ear bud cable is strong, i am a bit careless and lazy sometimes pick up the ZUNE by the cable.

to be honest I have not used ipods very much
i have bought two, one for my gf and one for her 11 year old

she checked out the ZUNE
and said it is better than her ipod

if you buy a lot of music, ipods has a much bigger selection

however, ZUNE song downloads are only 79 cents.

the menu is easy to navigate

it is a very solid little machine, i have dropped it a few times

i am not a big microsoft fan

i use firefox over explorer

i do believe they got this ZUNE right

oh,

and that community, sharing thing

i have not even bothered with it

i just leave it off

i have other devices that have infra-red

i don't use them

i may try it with the zune

i don't know anyone that has one yet

i guess it might be nice if i could say listen to this

instead of trying to encourage someone to download a song

imagine if all of the ipods out there could send songs back and forth

Same. Though not entirely by choice. It's big, it's bulky, and it's a bitch taking all my CDs along with me. Although, on the plus side, it forces me to listen to my albums the whole way through (which is how it should be.)

So wait, deep, this Zune thing can convert PROTECTED MP4s? On their website, they say that protected iTunes files can't be played on it...that's the one thing that's keeping me from buying any other digital music players other than iPods. Of the measley 3,186 songs on my computer, 297 of them were purchased through the iTunes shop. It would be a waste to purchase anything that couldn't play them.

on my desk top i have a quanity? of mp3s


in my downloading frenzy

i got a couple of mpegs? videos
and some of those MP4s? thingies (i did not buy them from itunes)

i don't use itunes

so the MP4s? just took up space

well when I hooked up ZUNE

i think they converted to wmas and then mp3s? I am not sure, it does it by itself

anyways I did not realized that I had a cool video of wake up by arcade fire w/ bowie until i looked on my videos on my ZUNE

I just take one cd so I am REALLY forced to listen to a whole album.

My sister gave me an mp3 player she got free for opening a bank account. I can put songs on it. I don't need to put thousands on it. I've only used about 5% of the space on it. I can listen to songs at the gym. That's all I really use it for.

Vinyl and cds and tapes. Bigger is better.
