The Zune was a great device. It's fashionable to hate Microsoft though so it got buried. I was a little bummed that they eliminated the ability to send songs directly to other Zune users, I used to do this on the subway for fun. The thing looks great, feels even better. Sadly, it only exists within the universe of the Windows phone, which I think is a stupid idea. I think it was a superior device to most of the competition, only really getting stiff competition from Apple, and comparing to mini computers like the iPod Touch isn't really fair, this belongs in the iPod Classic category. It's a dedicated media player and although there are some apps (bells and whistles) it's really built to play music and movies and by golly, it does it better than everything else on the market. The OLED screen is the sexiest thing ever, I know it's probably costly to manufacture, but it looks so damn good, I can't believe there's hardly anything (if anything) on the market with OLEDS. Humbug.
