    Here's an interesting article:
    http://kotaku.com/5080161/obama-on-all-your-base-are-belong-to-us-bwah

    I wonder what lies ahead for a nation run by a geek.

    A new Mountain Dew perhaps?

    I won't believe it until I see video evidence

    Oh, and it should probably be President-Elect and not Present-Elect, unless I'm missing a joke or something

    what's funny is that I did not even notice it said Present-Elect until now. My mind just fixed it for me as I was reading.

    It's not the instance here, but there is this neat thing your brain will do when you're reading incorrect text. If the two end letters are correct, and the correct letters are present, but mixed up, you won't notice at first. Your brain recognizes the word and reassembles it for you. I'm sure there's an actual term for this, but I don't know what it is.

    edit: Yeah here's the sample text
    Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae.

    Im considering a zune when I next get an mp3 player. my current nano hasn't broken yet and still plays music just like i want it to so there is no reason to upgrade.

    I think with the zune service and the software it behooves Microsoft to make a zune nano, something tiny and weightless that just plays music. because ill never buy an mp3 player i can feel the weight of in my pocket when jogging. thats top of my list.

    I like it because I always scroll past what I want on an IPod and it pisses me off. Also because I can send pictures of my ass to my brother while he's listening to music.

    As a Zune owner, the quickness actually bothered me.

    It's like, when Reverend Wright popped up Obama was willing to let it play out a bit before deciding whether or not to disown the man, but the moment that it is suggested that he uses a non iPode device he's gotta go and issue a statement?

    For shame. I'll be bringing my Zune to inauguration, and check the wireless for other zunes present.

    personally I think it's more likely that Obama was actually just asking what the guy was saying, and he interpreted it as continuing the quote

    if it ever happened at all, that is

    they do, in 4 and 8 (and possibly 12 or 16, I forget) gigabyte flavors.

    Most of the misconceptions about the zune product seem to come from the fact that folks simply don't know about it. I blame this on the folks working in electronics stores who automatically point at the iPod anytime that a customer is even vaguely interested in mp3s.

    My mom owns a Zune. My mom can't even work the TV and she doesn't even have a fancy one, yet she listens to her Zune. There is some science going on there that I can't understand.

    MSoft sent me my Zune for free about 15 months ago.

    At the time, I was seriously considering buying one anyway (I was at the point of picking out a color)

    Due to their awesome firmware policies, other than the fact that 30 gigs is no where near enough for me, they have kept me happy on this device long past the point where I would have upgraded with a competitor. (Currently I'm just waiting for a red 120 to come out.)

    what the hell do you need three PMPs for, man

    I have a Nano for my car, the Touch for movies/web browsing, and the Zune is for music. (I got the Touch for free)

    Some times I like to imagine a word where everyone has zune, all squirting songs up each other's zune-holes.

    My Zune is a Brown 30 named Zaphod. A buddy of my has a Black 80 named Lincoln (because it is black).

    I've never had to buy my mp3 players. I won my IPOD Shuffle in a Halo 2 Tourney, my Zune from well, a Microsoft Contest, and my PSP from a Ghost Recon tourney at PAX. Considering I have played with Ipod's too, besides the whole battery issue, I like the Zune alot better than the Ipod.

    I like the idea of the carbonation in your pop being too much for your mormon body

    Same here except I'm not fond of the fact that the battery will only hold a charge for about 45 minutes anymore.

    Also um techincally the iPod is not a "Mac" product. If you mean "Apple" then ok, but then you turn around and buy a Microsoft product? Really? You prefer Microsoft as a corporate entity over Apple? Really?

    battery issue?

    granted, the last iPod I owned was black and white, but my experience with Zunes and iPods would put Zune as the winner in the battery catagory.
