  • I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  • An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you ought to write more about this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but generally people don’t discuss such topics. To the next! Many thanks!!

  • This is a very good tip particularly to those fresh to the blogosphere. Simple but very precise information… Many thanks for sharing this one. A must read article!

  • Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
