    Zune Vs. iPod

    Link

    Has anyone heard of the Zune yet? How will it fare, with Apple dominating the market already?

    Apple, definitely. Everyone is getting their hands on those sexy Macbooks and Macbook Pros and the new PowerMac was just unleashed from its chains. On the other hand, Vista is dragging along with only it's first Release Canditate just recently.

    Also, Durf poinged my boobies, many times.

    Whoa, MT, when did you start posting in here again!?
    Also, as far as the opinions for the Apple/iPod goes, I say if you want to get an iPod, only get it if you can get it for cheap. There are plenty of mp3 players out there that can outshine, if not, compete with an iPod for a fraction of it's price. I think iPods are only good sellers since it's "popular", uhhmm, not entirely sure if that came out right, but yeah, thats what I think.

    TurbulentTurtle has one.
    The Creative Zens are a good alternative as well. :thumbsup:

    Well its all personal opinion really.
    I own an iPod Nano myself, so my previous post sounds kind of hypocritical, but I got it for cheap, so not really. As I said earlier, I don't think the iPods are worth it for the price tag, but they are fantastic little gizmos, do some research, get some opinions, look at some demos. It'll boil down to your tastes about what you want from your mp3 player in the end.

    Creative for the win!!!!

    I think maybe iPod will do better than the Zune though. Mostly because iPod tends to shadow the competition in terms of popularity and advertisements. Other mp3 players barely get any publicity so the general public has no idea what's on the market or what is being offered. If the Zune spends a crap load of cash on ads everywhere, it could do better than the iPod.

    I love my Creative :cloud9:

    Microsoft will sell more Xbox 360s in Japan than it will sell Zunes.

    For everyone saying iPods aren't worth it, why not post a link to some of these super cheap awesoma powa mp3 players I keep hearing about.

    Face it, iPods are sexy. Sure they have a lot of hype, but there is not better combination of store/song management/interface out there. If there was there would be some strong cult following among geeks about a single player, there isn't one.

    Besides the current iPods won't be going up against the Zune. The latest update to the iPods was basically a bigger HD and some games. Apple will be releasing something better for Xmas(if nothing else they need something to fill the 400-600$ slot they opened up), they did this just to mess with Microsoft's head about pricing.

    Sorry about my thread on the zune, I guess I'll check all the pages next time to make sure there isn't already a topic about it :(

    I'm not to sure about which will sell better, but I am really interested in the Zune , but I'm just going to sit back for a little while and see how things unfold before I choose what to buy.

    Turb, do you have to move your thumb up and down in that center oval to move through the UI?

    The GUI looks a lot like the iPods.


    Donutz: Are you willing to get a inferior product just to not be labeled a prep? If people where you are label you by what mp3 player you have and nothing else I feel bad for you.

    No I'm not saying I'm willing to get an inferior product just to not fulfill a sterotype, that was just one of a few reasons I'd like to get the Zune instead. And if I did live in a world marked by stereotypes of mp3 players...yea...that would be just a taddddddddddddddd bit awkward :)
    I guess I just want something different from the Ipod, that's all, just looking for new things.

    Yeah, you move your thumb up and down the pad. Some people say that's stupid because then you can't go in a continuous motion and you waste time...

    I don't think it's a waste of time, I think it would make my thumb tired going through either my list of playlists or my total song list.

    It's not tiring, I mean c'mon, you're not moving your thumb that much... I can scroll through my songs pretty quickly with that thing. And if you want, you can just search for you song.
