What do you know about the "Zune" from Microsoft

I have had the Ipod for a couple of years and basically hate everything about it and since it died again (2nd one) I am thinking of trying the Zune.

What are your thoughts?

are they making adaptors yet so you can control off your vehicle head unit?

I looked at that a few months back. I think there was one system that could do it. I can't find it now; could have been canned quickly.

The Zune is awesome if you want to watch movies on your MP3 player.

What iPod were you using? I picked up one of the new 6s and it works far better than my older ones. Did you hard reset the iPod yet?

ya I have done the restarts and then wiped it and even reformatted it.. My thoughts are the Hard Drive died, it will store about 30 songs and thats it.. I hate it anyways, you can't share my own pics let alone songs!!!

I never had that issue. I use TuneBite to remove all DRM from all of my music before I put it in iTunes.

Digital Rights Management. If you remove them you can do whatever you want with the files. If you buy through iTunes, the files are a pain. I either rip from CD or D/L from Amazon. You can share all you want once DRM is gone.

I've had 2 Zunes. The first one died when it was less than a month old. The second lasted about a year (just died today)... And no, they have not yet come out with one that works off your head unit... IMHO, the Zune is not worth the money, especially if they are gonna die every year.. I will never own another one. In fact, tomorrow I am headed out to get an ipod.

Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen. - quote by Samuel Adams

Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end
