Damn. I’ve been using Zune players since the first 30GB version. I’ve had every one of them and, for purely MP3 playback, they are superior in every way to the iPod IMHO. (I’ve also had every type of iPod as well so I’m a fair judge).
I never understood the MS plan for Zune. They hardly ever pushed it, even when they released the phenomenol Zune HD. It seemed like they just kept coming out with new ones and not advertising them AT ALL. Like they didn’t want them to sell or something. I’m a huge fan of the Zune Pass as you get unlimited music to download with 10 songs to keep each month for only $15/mo. The iPod Touch has the app store which killed Zune but for an MP3 player the thing just can’t be beat.
Oh well, I’ll still use my 120GB Zune till it dies. RIP Zune.
