    They act like they want to help but if you've seen as many as me you see their pattern of doing nothing but posting a link to their software everywhere they can. They never actually stop and help someone with a problem. I've seen people start threads asking a simple question and get nothing but links from four or five different software pimps - they remind me of ticks trying to bleed people of their money. In one thread the software pimps actually started fighting each other as to who's crap software was the best.

    Why would zune win? 80gb ipod is smaller than 30gb zune. Why would i want to carry something huge in my pocket. IT's also not touch screen wheel. means ipod is faster to search music and browse. 8/10 people who have mp3 player have ipod. Cause it's the best right now. I love my ipod.

    @rihgt682, You get more for your money or should I say for the same money $249.00. Again, no one who already ownes an iPod is going to just run out and buy a ZUNE. But you can bet that anyone making a purchase today is more likely to fancy a ZUNE. ZUNE is the latest in MP3 technology and improvement without being a mere copycat. I've stood and watched as new customers seeking to buy a portable MP3 choose ZUNE over the iPod, right now and as you suggested it's popularity but once that fades and education sets in, ZUNE will be the clear choice of most people seeking a new portable MP3 player.:p

    I really, really hope MS gets the Zune tight soon. I HATE iTunes. IMHO, Apple is a second rate company. Always has been, always will be. I'm so sick and tired of the elitist attitude of Apple. Macs aren't better, they're just more expensive and proprietary.

    You have the latest in advanced MP3 features found on the ZUNE i.e. wireless transmission of music. The iPOD isn't better it's just more popular and APPLE/Mac knows it, that's why MAC insist on down playing the ZUNE's capabilities. They have even gotten many retailers and many magazine publications to partner their insecure sentimnet offering very few of the ZUNE's accessories and lots of unfounded biase opinion. I challenge you to visit any retailer in the northeast and you'll find the ZUNE is out stock. The ZEN is an unstabble peice of junk. I watch as their returned left and right. The iPod can compete and they will, but just know for now they've got nothing on the 30GIG ZUNE @249.00.

    Do not even get me started on the Zen. I got my daughter an iPod for Christmas, but trying to use two of the same model on one pc caused all kinds of problems with iTunes. So, we returned it for a Zen. It has, without a doubt, the worst software and the worst case design imaginable. If the darn thing hadn't scratched so easily I'd return it too.

    i pod has more models which all appeal to different people and price ranges, and that is a HUGE deal. they also have less bugs, and will hold up better over the long haul. think of it this way.....a runner, wants a mp3 player to use while running......ipod or zune? hmmmmmm yeah ill spend 70 bucks on an ipod shuffle 1gb....there a sale for ipod that zune will not get anytime soon.

    I agree with hayden58, if the zune was smallewr and ofered a few other versions it might have a fighting chance... but it dosen't so it dosen't have a chance!

    exactly, they would have to offer more models for different lifestyles and price ranges. i work at a car dealership so think of it this way.....brand new car company comes out.....Zune Auto.....they make 1 type of car, its a large SUV very nice, but thats all they make......ok how in the heck are they gonna take over the car industry with 1 model? no matter how good it is, what if the person wants a truck to carry Stuff, or a little car for gas mileage, it aint gonna happen.

    Just wait for iPhone, which combines iPod, phone and web broswer and has 3.5-inch screen like Zune.
