Today sees the release of the much-ballyhooed Microsoft Zune.



30GB for $250 - same as iPod 30GB

Main selling points over iPod are the bigger screen, FM tuner, and WiFi capability




Anyone care?

"Much-Ballyhooed"? I didn't even know about it until I read your post.

Not me.

Just last week I sold my 30 gig to a co-worker, and bought a brand new 80 Gig.

Then just today, I bought the new Shuffle.  That thing is so ******* small, how can I not buy one for when I go running...

The best part is all of this only cost me about $200 out of pocket, not bad for a brand new iPod with 50 extra gigs, and the shuffle.

My old 20gb iPod crapped out on me (hard drive).  I had the service plan so Best Buy had it fixed.  I was kind of hoping they couldn't fix it though and I could get a new color one instead.

Microsoft drops the ball again: Zune incompatible with Vista

I'll stick with all of my Apple products, thank you.

Just another (late) 'me too' attempt by Microsoft.

I finally got around to updating to the new iTunes so I could get the new Shuffle up and running.


Greatest.  Invention.  Ever.

I can't wait to try it out at the track tomorrow.

how much space do movies take up?   i could only fill about 15 gig if i put every cd i own on it(good, bad or completely crappy).

unless movies are huge and you have lots of free time riding the bus or something i am not sure i understand the purpose of 80 gigs.

My 80g iPod has a few movies... Monty Python's Holy Grail is about 300 MB, while Family Guy episodes are roughly 60 MB or so. Unfortunately the battery life is too weak to really use the video, unless you've got it plugged into a charger.

How much play time (music) are people getting from their Ipods?  I have a 30 GB vid and the battery only lasts maybe 5-6 hours at best.  Is this normal?  Good?  Poor?

Brent, my iPod MIGHT last 10 hours. Backlight off and minimal scrolling.

So who's excited about the new i-phone?

Apple Introduces i-phone

If the HD options were larger (say 80GB or so) I might be interested.

Nonetheless, it looks to be very cool and easy to use.

Unfortunately, there isn't a phone service to match the product's quality. I hate Cingular.
