Re: Anybody got a Zune?

Yep! After using i-tunes software to load our boys' ipods we got them for christmas, I decided to get one myself. When I got to the store and compared the ipod and zune side by side, I decided on the zune..... much larger display for viewing pics and vids. I love it!

The video quality looks so much better compared to the ipods. Not sure about anyone else, but when I am watching anything on my ipod it will play normally for a min, then freeze, and then play again but the sound will be off by a second. The Zune looks like a better deal for pics and vids.

I had been planning on getting one, but...when I saw the display at Staples the other day, they were a great deal bigger than I expected them to be.

From everything that I have read and seen and heard, they say it is a good idea, but typical microsoft crap has prevented it from being able to really compete with iPod.

Re: Anybody got a Zune?

i wonder if microsoft will ever be able to come up with anything "original". Zune is just a ripoff iPod, as much as i hate apple iPod has nothing to worry about, unless Zune becomes uber cheap and whatnot.

Re: Anybody got a Zune?

ok i meant anything original nowadays. seems theyre copying everything

Aol creates AIM, Microsoft makes MSN Messenger.

Google has Google Earth, Microsoft has Windows Live (which sucks compared to GE)

Mozilla came out with tabbed browsing via Firefox. Microsoft IE (insert IE number here) now has it as well.

Apple makes uber-popular MP3 device, Microsoft makes one about what, 5 years after the original iPod was released?

Im not against microsoft but lately they really havent done anything original for a while. Vista is cool but its just more looks and more reasons to upgrade the PC (not like thats a bad thing either).

Not to sound like a capatilist pig, or anything...but...

Microsoft isn't in buisness to make anything original. They're in buisness to make money. If they think they can make a mp3 device, or a search engine, or a game console, or an operating system (which wasn't original by Microsoft, in any sense), or whatever else and do it well enough to sell (and make money), they certainly will.

Honestly, I don't think Microsoft will ever have anything original. But they still make money, so you gotta give them props.

The operating system was around a long time before Windows came out.

thats what microsoft is good at though.

emulating sucessful things with a item of somewhat equal quality but with the word microsoft on it. thats all it takes to be sucessful... not the best, not the first, but mocking sucessful companies.
