The Zune!

41K7bhZXgmL._SL500_AA280_.jpg

Media player extraordinaire!

Sending music from my pocket to yours!

Only 40 people in the world have one!

But I think you should change that

Starting today, the Zune 80 gig, pictured above, is retailing for 200 dollars.

200 dollars for 80 gigabytes of music!

Coming on sale today is the Zune 120 gig, taking the 80 gig's price at 250 dollars

250 dollars for 120 gigabytes of music, movies, podcasts, pictures, and games!

Do you feel like an idiot for not having one yet?

Because you should

Post in this thread so I can convince you to purchase one and gimme some of your fav dolly parton tracks

EDIT: Today, Zune 3.0 launched and it has some crazy features you might want to get your grubby little paws on

    My dad's got an iphone, and I've played around with it

    Largely, the features and apps are lost on me when all I really do is text and call

    EDIT: But I love love love doing the whole shrinking and enlarging of images with that little finger gesture.

    I'm still rocking the iPod Video 30gig and it has over twice the hard disk space I require and that's including my entire design portfolio being backed up on the drive.

    edit: One thing I dislike about touch-screens is that if I have my iPod in my pocket I don't need to lock the screen. Additionally, if I'm listening to it while walking and I feel like skipping a song I can cleanly hit "NEXT" without pulling the device out of my pocket. Touch-screens are flashy, entirely unnecessary for listening to music and they actually detract from the function of the device for how I use it.

    I would probably love a pocket-sized web-browser but I spend enough fucking time on the internet as it is, I do not need to post here from the Brugger's Bagels on my lunch break.

    The only thing I dislike about ipods or zunes or anything similar is that I can't really use them as a flash drive, which I used to do on my psp a lot

    I know you can on shuffles, but eh, it's a shuffle

    I love my Zune 8G. I intend to buy the sexy black 16G and you can do the custom graphic/engraving thing and it's gonna fucking rock. I tried out the downloading straight to my Zune thing today (hooray for backwards compatible firmware updates) its pretty awesome. What are the odds of my school having accessible WiFi so I can surf through the Marketplace in my hour and a half of study hall?

    Well, mine has an uprotected wifi, my friends use their laptops all the time

    So I'd say as long as you don't live in wiggin's town, your school's connection will probably suffice

    I think you can use a Zune as a portable drive. Though I think it involves registry edits.

    I like how the new Zune software lets you do that thin where it shows related artists and you just start clicking and find new music.
