Well well well, what do we have here? Turns out Obama is a Zune user. The change is already starting it seems.
What!? This can't be! I should have voted for that damn Mccain.
I seriously hope ur being sarcastic.....
I wonder how all these liberal/probama/sheeple/apple fanboys are going to react?
Probably with the most intense and extreme not caring thats every been witnessed... Seriously, who gives a F? This isn't news, you stupid nerds.
i knew he had a Zune, thats why i voted for him.
McCain still uses a Walkman though
kk that was a good one....lol
BIG BOSS approves of Barack Obama. Gives 10th approval of story.
that's nice to hear. i have one as well.
Zunes are underrated, but I can't live without iTunes so I had to go with the Podz0rz.
i use a Zune :) the double color effect is way better and prettier than stupid ipod. and build in tuner.
A lot of people like to hate on it cause it's from MS, But I like mine! It's pretty much the same as an Ipod, so it's not a big deal. I have noticed that I don't see any Zune's in the stores anymore! I would say they don't carry them anymore, but they still have the signs out for it. It just looks like people keep buying them.
Check out the Zune 3 software: http://www.zune.net/en-us/s... And, the Zune hardware: http://www.zune.net/en-US/m... And, Zune Pass, which, for $15 per month gets you 10 Songs to download and keep (even after the end your subscription) **AND** you get unlimited, anywhere, anytime music downloading & discovery: http://www.zune.net/en-us/s... Zune is a better player. Zune uses better software. Zune is a better value. Also, Zune plays community games written in XNA.
and i use it daily. It's actually pretty good. I like the most recent updates which added games and other cool stuff. Also use the radio tuner frequently. It's highly underrated just cause it's made by Microsoft.
ok fine the ipod is better than the zune. BUT the service is not. Zune pass is not a scam. All the downloads you want for 9.99 a month. Its that simple. If you were a true microsoft fanboy you would have one.
I have a Zune and its always freezing on me..... it's time for a change. Is it a lot of work in transferring my music from Zune to itunes? I have about 15 gigs of music.
so from nowhere every ass hole who has this piece of garbage is popping up?
is the fact the software sucks at finding song information. I can't tell you how many songs I have on my zune that are under the wrong artist, or just unknown. Not even WMP is that bad at finding song information. Other than that, it's a pretty good device. With the addition of java support now, there is a chance it could compete with all of the apps on ipod touch.
Ipod touch >>>Zune...
I love my Ipod Touch :) The Zune isn't sleek enough for my tastes and is too big and bulky.
Now where's the doctor responsible for Michael Jackson's color change...
yes i agree. The zune just isnt as small and stylish as the Ipod touch. plus you get apps, built in wifi, and a touch interface. I absolutely love my Ipod touch simply because its a work of art instead of a piece of cheap plastic.
I'll stick with my 32GB Zen X-Fi. And I got it for half the price of the same capacity iPod Touch. I don't need it to be as "sleek" as some people seem to, but it works flawlessly, sounds crystal clear and for the price and functionality, it can't be beat.
my archos 605 for me. 160 gb, touch screen, wifi, better codec support (mpeg 4, divx, etc.) just dump the files into the device viola. it doesnt need some crappy software, i can even organize the files on the device without the need of hooking it up into the computer. but since it doesnt look as stylish as a ipod it gets ignored.........
I Phone /I Touch FTW
Errr...so? What does Hilary use? Sandisk?
Yeah, Steven, so what? He shouldn't have a personal preference now that he's becoming the next President? Guess what, he'll be surfing the web using his laptop. This topic is pointless, even if I own a Zune myself.
here's what Hilary uses BTW: How the hell is this news? The article is not even about video games? This is news for gamers right?
Give me my vote back! I kid.
Uh oh. Looks like this story already has a correction. Now the guy who wrote it said he never claimed it was Obama's Zune. Maybe he just borrowed it from some poor bum who can't afford a real music player, you know, an iPod.
Makes sense. Since Zunes cost SSOOOOO much less than IPODs. . . Zune has a built in fm tuner. IMO______Zune>IPOD.
i really don't care his job is to get use (USA) out of the hole that we made for ourselves i don't care if he uses an ipob or a Zone. i don't care if he is getting a new puppy. i don't care what type of relationship he has with his wife. I mean most people here have a better idea of what they are doing when we go to a store and are deciding between an Ipod or zune.
his job is not to make things better for the american people. his job is to serve the corporations who put him in office. i don't understand how ppl can actually believe his campaign of "change" is any different than EVERY other candidates claim of "change" the only change we're going to see is more intrusion on our constitutional rights and increased taxes.
i would say it cooler he has this XD http://isohunt.com/img/misc...
has free games. pretty neat
yea but free for how long? it's a Microsoft product after all
um microsoft has given out free games since the dawn of time...solitaire anyone? minesweeper > ipod
I love how MS updates each Zune to make it up to date. 1st gen Zunes have the same exact features and navigation system as 3rd gen Zunes. Can't say that about the ipod. Their support is awful. They like to leave you out in the dust.
Umm....all hail Steve Mobs?
XD apple and packman all the way http://isohunt.com/img/misc...
iPod > Zune
Dogsh*t on the sidewalk > zune
How is this news? If he likes the Zune, he likes the Zune. Big f*cking deal. What's the next story gonna be about? How Uwe boll prefers windows xp over vista? I really don't understand why people buy things based one what the president or some celebrity likes. You should buy things based on if it's convenient to you or not and if you'll enjoy it.
Zune is awesome! I have one. My wife has one. Zune is my best MP3 player to date (owned iPods, Zens, etc)
I remember Obamas apple commercial.
sorry...gotta be iPod is number 1 in my books. I wouldn't buy a Zune simply cuz of that disgusting commercial where the fat guy is literally shooting paint out of his poo hole. Go look it up on youtube...
Zunes are amazing. I love them. I do think the touch is better but look at the price difference. I used to have a touch. It was 32GB. With warranty, adapter, and case it came up to more than $600. I could buy a PS3 and a 360. And people who buy touchs wish they had both systems. Well you can, just know how to spend your money.
Warraty for what? An iPod doesn't need an extra warranty. I had a second generation iPod for a few years. It never had trouble. Now I have a second generation Nano and no problems. If you paid extra for an extended warranty you wasted your money.
You need a warranty for the iTouch. Not to mention that iPods used to have a 20% failure rate. I think it has gotten better, but I don't feel safe with the touch without a warranty. But even without the warranty, it still costs a crapload. I think comparing the Zune 80GB to the iPod classic is a far better comparison
my bro Ipod touch overheated and had to buy new . fixing it cost about new ipod touch
lol i had returned mine, and just went for the craked iphone all in one deal, but I just hate tunes trying to update all the time.
Obama's already making bad decisions The Zune is pretty craptacular. The iPod has it's ups and downs too like getting rid of flash memory in the classic ipods so they run slow as molasses (actually getting rid of my 160 GB because of it), but the Zune is just flat out ugly, bulky, and lacking
Kind of like your mom.
You are the clever one Go ahead and pat yourself on the back Special star for you
customer support and Warranty. Microsoft doesn't have an international warranty. While Apple has. My cousin bought an iPod in the US and returned to Norway, it got broken, then an Apple store upon checking it, replaced it with a new one, hassle free.
Sandisk 1GB from Woot a few weeks back for $10 dollars; they'll come back from time to time so keep an eye out if you want a cheap mp3 player. And Barack Obama/John McCain FTL.
I hear McCain uses the vinyl record player! Vinyl Record player > Zune/iPod! :D
ahah Zune sux. But anyway, anybody is perfect. Obama is not, but its a great man im sure.
I adorE him he can handle my baby any time.
why is this not suprising, GTFO if your just going to troll, take your ipods that constanly brick and go. -nai-
only microsoft haters wouldn't admit that the Zune is more superior than the ipod... hell... I have a launch Zune... and guess what? it has the same features and interface than the new Zunes since Microsoft made the zune upgradable as new firmwares come out... the ipod is not like that... you have an older ipod and you want the new features.. you need to buy yourself a new one... I think what microsoft needs to do next is... allow the zune to be use as an xbox 360 hard drive and allow the Zune to download/connect to the xbox live movie marketplace... and I will be happy camper.
You just blew my mind man! Thats one of the best ideas I have heard on here. Bubblez for u...
Microsoft is so generous that they only release Zune (Software) for PC only. Oh I forgot how the Zunes cannot be used as an external storage whereas the rest of the PMPs out there supports it out of the box. Gotta Love Micro$oft.
Actually I read an article here on N4G where M$ stated that you will actually be able to use the Zune as an HDD for the 360..
I Heard Bush uses the I-raq.
That comment deserves a car crash audio clip.
I love Apple through and through, and I own a 160GB iPod, but the Zune is better IMO. Upgradable SW is a big plus, FM radio with the ability to tag songs for download, better screen, Zune pass....but the best feature is Wi-Fi. If it worked on a mac/iTunes, I would get it, but I keeps my music on my Mac side of my dual-boot. I love the idea of my iPod updating when I walk through the door, no cords needed, no work necessary. But it cant do that. But iPod is ubiquitous and is more compatible with stuff...like my Sony Xplod deck for instance. Dont get me wrong, I loves my iPod, but Zune seems like a better deal.
Someone above already said it, but it is too bulky. Also, after firmware 3.0 the damn thing kept on freezing. There's no possible way to contact a Zune rep other than calling them...that is bullsh!t. Anyway, I might get a smaller 4-8gb Zune in the future, but for now I'm sticking with my Creative Zen x-fi 32GB. The zune was my first mp3 player outside of creative products and the old rca lyra. I refuse to go ipod.
Yep, it's time for a change, he must change to iPod.
