    So Microsoft is planning on releasing new Zunes . There's a bunch of info about it on that page.

    Unfortunately, I've owned a Zune. They are crap. The interface and software both. I immediately switched back to an Apple iPod.

    Zunes cannot redeem themselves - they are definately not iPod killers...never will be. The new Zunes looks like over glossy pieces of turd. And it looks like there are Zune Flash...rip-offs of the Apple iPod I say.

    But, the old Zunes will have the new interface on them and no DRM restrictions (what I've heard) - nice move, Microsoft.

    The new interface for the new Zunes looks very nice. Not that I'd ever buy one. But I'd definitely get one over an iPod (which I'd also never buy).

    Hate to say it but it looks exactly like an iPod from where I'm sitting. Take that as you will [​IMG]

    Yeah...iTunes is the best media managing and viewing software there is.

    Apple FTW.

    Don't know how you see that [​IMG]

    The iPods and Zunes looks completely different.

    The iPod being more sleek and 'sexy'.
    The Zune being more glossy and clunky.

    I like the iPod's simple interface. It goes along great with the clickwheel.
    I've yet to speak anything about the new interface, I haven't used it yet.

    The new iPod interface has both - Simple Interface and Background (of Album Covers)...

    Face it your an iPod Fanboy ^ the Zunes interface is better than the iPods. But this is just my opinion. I don't have a Zune, I have a 1st gen iPod Nano :S

    I guess I has to face it: I love me some iPod.

    But - my love for Apple iPod came when I realized my Zune was shit and how much greater the iPod is.

    JPH... you are fanboying all over the place! Somebody help me clean this mess up, lol.

    Give the Zune a chance. This iteration might actually be nice. Different bites for different likes.
    I hear so many hating iTunes, and I love it, I'm assuming it's the PC version they gripe about, and if that's the case, Apple should get off their butts and make it as nice as the Mac iTunes. Microsoft should then give us an up to date version of Office as a reward.


    It could happen...

    h.264 and mpeg4 support.

    Too bad none of the major companies want to include xvid support.
