Yeah I was gonna mention how they tried the software on other PC's and it seems to work fine. Having set up a few on display at work *BestBuy* everything went fine. I had no issues with the software and anyone and everyone who has any Microsoft product on their PC is already used to the Registration process. I have no complaints other than the fact that the Zune is a bit thicker than I thought it would be. Oh, and there are no cool ways to integrate it in to your car stereo besides an AUX jack.

"Songs wirelessly transferred from one Zune to another can only be played three times. After three days, the song expires – regardless of whether or not it has been played. Just playing half the song (or one minute, whichever comes first) counts as one “play.” You can never resend a song to the same friend, nor can a song received from someone else be passed on to a third person. These limitations apply to all files, including copyright-free self-recorded songs and similar."

Not really.   Also, on engadget, there are several fishy comments about how good the zune is.     Fishy as in microsoft using robots to make spam posts.    Check it out:


"My girlfriend and I both bought zunes today at Best Buy. After we installed the software (worked flawlessy on xp pro on both our notebooks). We started downloading the crap out of the marketplace with our subscriptions. I just met her a hour ago at a coffee shop and we sent each other some songs to test everything out. A bunch of people kept asking us what we were using and what the hell we were doing. It was pretty cool. I am not a big fan of the 3 x 3 plan, but if you have the subscription package on marketplace, its not a big deal at all since all songs are free (just your $15 fee per month)."



There are several very similar to that, emphasizing the whole "welcome to the social" tagline.

Im actually goin out to get one tonight, Im tired of having to buy a new ipod every year and only fit 200 songs on my 4gb piece of junk. Ive had a bad experience with ipods and right now Id rather deal with faulty software than faulty hardware.

Except apple will cover it if its hardware, and it borks "every year" as you say. And stop being cheap and get something bigger than 4 gigs, or shutup and dont complain about lacking space.

Or buy a better ipod.

Yeah, it's kinda weird.... you'd think that music bought through Zune Marketplace would work on the Zune. Oh wait

I thought about getting an ipod but apple didnt do anything about the hardware problem when I asked them to fix it. This happened twice. My battery constantly dies at random times on the first and second ipods Ive owned and everyone else has the same problems with them. Why would I buy a new more expensive ipod if the ones Ive had didnt work. Wheres the logic in that?

You don't need to get a new iPod every year. Just get one larger than 4 gigs and hang on to it for several years. I have a 4th gen one that I have had very few issues with since I got it 2 and a half years ago.

I didnt get a new one every year because they didnt hold enough songs, I got new ones because they kept breaking. Battery problems mainly (randomly turned off, life kept getting shorter, etc) and and in one instance never turned back on again. I have to say I love itunes though, possibly the best music service out there.
