There were plenty of weak spots that led to Microsoft's disastrous December quarter, but one that didn't get much attention Thursday was how badly the Zune did.
Of course it plummeted. Nobody cares about the zune. I know I dont. I never saw someone with a zune in my life and I never saw one in stores.This holiday people were looking for HD TVs Xbox 360s Wiis NDS PSPs Ipods Blu Rays PS3s
I got a Zune, but I had to get it from ebay (US) cos I don't think it is even sold in UK. It is pretty good, I like the fact that they give you a few free games on it. But yeah it will never be as popular as iPod, but it is still a great MP3 player.
gives you hundreds of free games and apps. also if you smart like me all games and aps are free. actually its really not that hard
It kind of makes the statement below seem silly. http://www.n4g.com/tech/New... The Zune didn't have the form factor, the looks or the service it needed to take on the iPod. "Welcome to the social"??????? What the hell was that?
Zune + Zune Pass > Everything...
I want to get a Zune just for the Zune Pass. Great concept. The ability to keep 10 songs per month is nice as well. Averages out to 3/4 of a CD a month for songs you would have purchased. I hope the Zune doesn't go away any time soon. Competition is what drives innovation. I have never been able to justify an iPod. Why? Because everyone and their mom has one. Perhaps its just me, but I don't want to be a sheep. Sansa and Zune are different and offer compelling reasons not to own an iPod. Now if only the Zune service would move to cell phones...
Why get a Zune when you can get an Ipod? Ask yourself this question and then realize why Zune is a failure.
Why get an iPod when you can get a Sansa? ;) http://go.shopsansa.com/def... NO DRM infection and NO iTunes installation - and you don't pay 25% tax to Saint Steve... :D
Built in FM Wireless transfers The social really does work and really is awesome. AUTOPLAYLISTS!!!!! Zune software completely pwnzors, ipod software. I'm not a chick.
The Zune wasnt actually a bad mp3 player, my friend who owns one really likes it and never parts with his unit. Im not really into the fad of getting a new piece of tech just because it is popular or cool.
Wats a zune? lol
Last Xmas the sales guys everywhere were pushing the hell out of selling the Zune. You couldn't pick up an IPOD with without some pimple face nerd coming up to telling how much better the Zune was. Honestly I believe the Zune is probably the biggest failure in the market of MP3's no innovation, cost is too high, and there size is like carrying a 1980's cell phone around. I remember the first time I heard of the Zune it was on the news when the news anchor completely dissed the zune for being so big.
They took them out of gamespot. Because Gamespot thought they would cancel the zune after a year or more. Oh well. Why get a zune? When you can get an ipod touch? The app store owns all!
the ipod touch isnt a great ipod. I have a 16 touch and awhite 30 zune. i like them both and love the appz on the touch but i use my zune more for music and thee touch for its internet and app store.The zune software is pretty good and the pass is awesome. The ipod touch is flashy and looks cool but theres no radio
Bring on the summer and the OLED walkman X series
MS made a huge mistake trying to compete with the ipod. Zune's a decent Mp3 player, but it aint no ipod.
broke. Hmm I know this is a hard one but gee, where have you seen a Microsoft Hardware failure? Hmm
