Zapping the Zune -- Zounds!
Let's face it: Whether it's a Zune or an iPod, we're really just talking about a small drive that stores and plays media files. And speaking as a father who's paid for three now-dead iPods, Apple can't even build a reliable small drive that stores and plays media files. But when it comes to small drives that store and play media files, image is everything, and the Zune -- which has a cool name and is apparently not a bad device -- just isn't cool
Nor is it different in either price or features. The cheapest Zune at Best Buy is $140, while I can get an iPod for 50 smackers. No wonder Wall Street is now begging Redmond to kill the Zune.
Do you love the Zune? Did your iPod die only for you to discover it's basically irreparable? Love stories and sob stories equally welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org.
