  • I just want to mention I am just very new to blogging and actually savored your website. Almost certainly I’m want to bookmark your blog post . You really come with fabulous article content. Thanks for sharing your website.

  • bookmarked!!, I love your site!

  • Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  • 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.)

  • I’m very happy to uncover this web site. I need to to thank you for your time for this particularly wonderful read!! I definitely appreciated every little bit of it and i also have you book-marked to look at new stuff in your website.

  • The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  • Good blog post. I definitely love this site. Keep writing!

  • Next time I read a blog, Hopefully it does not disappoint me just as much as this one. After all, I know it was my choice to read through, but I truly believed you would probably have something useful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy seeking attention.

  • I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I found this in my hunt for something relating to this.

  • I need to to thank you for this excellent read!! I absolutely enjoyed every little bit of it. I’ve got you book-marked to check out new things you post…

  • Great article. I’m going through many of these issues as well..

  • Hi, I do think this is an excellent blog. I stumbledupon it 😉 I am going to revisit once again since i have book-marked it. Money and freedom is the best way to change, may you be rich and continue to help other people.

  • Howdy! I simply wish to give you a huge thumbs up for the great information you have here on this post. I’ll be coming back to your blog for more soon.

  • I’m pretty pleased to find this site. I need to to thank you for your time for this wonderful read!! I definitely savored every bit of it and i also have you book marked to look at new things on your site.

  • 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.

  • I’m very happy to uncover this site. I want to to thank you for ones time for this fantastic read!! I definitely really liked every part of it and I have you saved to fav to look at new stuff on your website.

  • If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  • After looking into a few of the blog posts on your website, I honestly like your way of blogging. I book-marked it to my bookmark webpage list and will be checking back soon. Take a look at my web site as well and tell me your opinion.

  • Right here is the perfect web site for anybody who wants to understand this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a topic that’s been discussed for decades. Great stuff, just excellent!

  • I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I found this during my search for something concerning this.

  • Oh my goodness! Awesome article dude!

  • 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.

    weblog or even a blog from start to end.

  • True leaders have the ability to take vision and turn it into reality.

  • Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental
    and all.However just imagine if you added some great images
    or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this
    blog could certainly be one of the best in its niche.
    Wonderful blog!

  • Hi there! I just wish to give you a huge thumbs up for your great info you’ve got here on this post. I am coming back to your site for more soon.
