any thoughts? comes out tuesday and it looks like a trip.
Just trying to get a piece of the Ipod pie.
Supposively a new ipod is coming out next year. With a touch screen. Just rumors though. Heard it from two guys in another forum.
Picked one up today, it's pretty sweet so far. I like the interface much better than the iPod, fer sure.
I picked up a white one, and I like it. I never had an Ipod, so i cant compare it. I bought one of the $20 A/V ipod cables, and it works. I plugged it into my 42" plasma, and it plays video full screen. It plugs into the headphone plug.
DVD movies look pretty good on it. My room mate is planning on exchanging his ipod video for one, and were going to set up a server here so we can convert, upload, and share movies.
can it be used as an external hd?
uggh nope it doesnt if it did id probly buy one
yeah if they fixed that it would be awesome (although admittedly I don't use that feature often at all on my 3 year old 20gb iRiver).
Everyone I've known who has bought one really liked it and I played with one today and the screen is a lot nicer than the iPods for watching videos.
I am enjoying mine so far, just wish it would be able to at least be recognized by a mac so i can drag mp3s onto it
i hate having to use my pc laptop.
go to engadget.com there's a usb drive hack for the zune. I'm not a fan of microsoft all too much but it might let your zune's drive be recognized by your mac.
thanks ! I will check it out.
Looks like its only on PCs. My bad man.
no worries, I mainly use my ipod for music.
Work sent me the zune to use as a "demo device" when i go to stores.
Played with it a few times and I really like the interface and screen. The people I know who have one love theirs as well so it seems off to a reasonable start
Yes it can....
I love my zune,sold the ipod 2 days after getting it...
zune owns the ipod much better
