  • I enjoy reading a post that will make men and women think. Also, many thanks for allowing me to comment!

  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  • Right here is the right website for anybody who wants to find out about this topic. You realize a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa).

  • The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  • I absolutely love your website.. Great colors & theme. Did you make this amazing site yourself? Please reply back as I’m planning to create my own personal site and want to learn where you got this from or exactly what the theme is named. Kudos!

  • An interesting discussion is worth comment. I believe that you ought to write more on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people don’t talk about these issues. To the next! Best wishes!!

  • A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do believe that you should write more about this subject, it might not be a taboo subject but generally folks don’t discuss these subjects. To the next! All the best!!
