sooooooooooo tired of the "HD" buzzword, especially when it's not even applicable (music)

I would like an MP3 player bigger than my 8gb iPhone. Hm.

No chance in hell would I preorder a Zune though. I'll wait for the hopefully good reviews.

ugh..well it's $100 less than the ipod touch.

aerofan11 08/13/09 08:17 AM

At least it isn't called "iZune".

xEnderx 08/13/09 08:18 AM

Yeah, wow. That price is a good thing. I'll definitely pick up one of the models with less memory. If there is one that floats around $200, I'll be happy.

Metal Now 08/13/09 08:20 AM

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Zune.

don't forget HD video out (although that requires buying the dock)

bulls2213 08/13/09 08:24 AM

here come the apple fanboys.

Phil507 08/13/09 08:27 AM

How many gigs can it hold? That's all I really care about.

schaft0620 08/13/09 08:35 AM

itunes is awful bloated software. trust me. i switched from itunes to the zune software and it not only looks a lot better but works a lot better

Chrisshanahan87 08/13/09 09:15 AM

*yawn*

When's the next iPhone out?

Nourez 08/13/09 09:16 AM

I'm getting myself a 120 GB iPod classic soon. I'll be passing on this one, no question.

Mr. November 08/13/09 09:19 AM

i wouldn't really want HD radio or HD tv shows and movies on such a small screen
they're just trying to ride the HD wave

Mxpx187 08/13/09 09:20 AM

I actually really like my Zune. I got it for Christmas. Didn't really understand all the hate it gets.

dancerazdance 08/13/09 09:26 AM

Zune means fucking in hebrew.

TheGoodnightMoon 08/13/09 09:29 AM

Hopefully this will be Micro$oft's last stab at an "ipod killer". What a joke the zune is.

Check it out yourself, here.

Myself, I'll be waiting on the 64gb version.

It's hilarious how many people hate on this for no reason at all, except that it's not an iPod/made by Apple.

Apparently you've never used a Zune before. You're probably one of those people who don't think for themselves and simply repeat what other incompetent people have told you before.

You probably voted for Obama as well.

it's not meant for small screen viewing...

through a dock, it plugs into hd tv's and can output HD movies/tv/etc...

read info before posting uninformed opinions

i did read it, and i wouldn't watch them on the zune and i wouldn't pay for the dock to watch them on my tv. it's that simple, HD isn't some extra high tech thing that's so awesome, you can watch youtube videos in HD.

Nice stupid, off-topic troll there at the end.

The 16GB is supposed to be $230 I think.

HD is a big deal. it's completely overtaken the industry: tv/movies/games/etc...

and for people to hold multiple HD movies/tv/etc... on a portable device and hook it up to someone's tv at any point in time is a big deal. it's like walking around with a case of your favorite HD movies/tv shows.

i guess for some people it'd be nice but personally i couldn't care less if what i'm watching or playing is in HD or not

Kevin360 08/13/09 10:02 AM

Waiting for a 64GB or 120GB iPod Touch... Not because I have anything against Zune, but I've spent so much money on iTunes that it would be a dumb move for me to make the switch.

Yellowcard2006 08/13/09 10:03 AM

Awesome. There's so many ignorant people in here. If anyone has been following the Zune HD they'd know it's an iPod killer. I'm getting one.

veryEmergency 08/13/09 10:04 AM

I'm a DJ in Philadelphia for a commercial-free indie/punk/alternative/whatever radio station that broadcasts on an HD signal.. 88.5 HD-2 WXPN

www.yrockonxpn.org

this is great news in my opinion.

TwelveTribes230 08/13/09 10:09 AM

Pretty sick...I just need more memory..my 80gig ipod is filling up fast. I would rather have an ipod like this because I already have all the acessories to it (bose docking station and plug for my car). Hopefully their will be a new ipod similair to this with more space.

Mens 08/13/09 10:19 AM

I love my Zune.

zachff 08/13/09 10:20 AM

I have lost the need for an iPod, I've found. Ever since I upgraded to my 32GB iPhone 3GS, I haven't used my old 60GB iPod. Not once. I probably only listened consistently to 15 GB of what I had on my iPod anyways, and I will always have all that music on my computer. Also there is no point in having two music playing devices in my pocket at once, so iPhone it is for me.

eh I mean, unless it's all on movies you can upgrade the tracks to DRM-free in iTunes plus, then use whatever you want
