    What do you think will happen when this releases.
    If you haven't heard of it here is a Link to the Wikipedia page on it
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Zune

    I think the Ad Hoc thing is cool that you can transfer songs and things between each other.
    being as it will only have a 30GB The Ipods cheaper nano's will sell for people not wanting so much.
    But wait micrsoft might make something that is smaller for cheaper.
    Also who wouldn't like theior MP3 to connect with their 360? nice feature.
    A radio Fm reciever without having to buy extra things sounds good.
    Read the entire reveiw.

    It hasn't even come out yet . Even so, if the Zune doesn't have a particular program (like iTunes) then I will probobly get one. You've probably already seen my rants/ideas on iTunes, so I won't speak any more of it.

    Anyways, I like the brown one, and that'd be the one I buy.

    ALSO: I ADDED A POLL

    I think the iPod will still outsell this. It is new out there, and has less support. Apple's iPod is too well known and popular for a device like this to just take away the iPod's revenue.

    it won't take them away but start a battle with apple for who has the better product. look how much apple is charging for the 8Gb nano wouldn't you rather buy this.

    I hope they have a freebie site for one of these

    Obviously the Zune won't kill the iPod in the first two years! It would take a massive effort by microsoft to advertise, a lot of word-of-mouth from a lot of people, and just a long time to make a sizeable dent in iPod sales.

    Sort of like the X-box wasn't designed to take away a big market share from the ps2, rather the Zune is only a stepping stone to give microsoft experiance for the next version/firmware which will hopefully (for microsoft) get people's attention brought to it rather than a shiny new iPod.

    Definently isn't going to happen overnight

    yeah, I still don't like it though, reminds me of verizon's chocolate, and who said you couldn't connect your ipod to your 360? I find it intriguing that microsoft is venturing into the hardware world little by little. first the xbox, then the pad thingamajigger (can't remember what it's called, the ultra portable shit), and now this. I wonder how long it'll be before they actually start making computers?

    one major fault in the zune that I heard it can't play protected music files. As in all music you purchased off of iTunes or some other pay program wont play on this device! Thats a major drawback and will really hurt its sales.

    So all that advertising for Microsofts new "will sure play" or whatever was a big waste now that one of its big products wont!

    Are they trying to promote piracy?

    i know, like a 360 has a triple core 3.2ghz cpu, you know how fast that computer would be? and they could make it the size of the 360, and be $500 or less, basically just make a 360 designed for vista. it's already got enough usb ports, that would be insane, and it would only make sense that the hardware be optimized to run with the software, not the software conform to the limitations of the hardware...

    a pc with HD output that can hook up to a tv. modified drivers to display to resolutions for standard tv's and lcd tv sets. imagine playing WoW on a 42" lcd, or checking forums on the tv instead. multimedia center
