I could score a 30 GB one off Amazon for $80 right now, with video abilities and everything. It had the sleekest, most user-friendly software, and it feels so much better in the hand with more intuitive controls than that overpriced apple junk.

How could people be so dumb as to pay hundreds of dollars more for a worse product? Just because of the ads with silhouettes dancing to indie songs in front of boring, one-color backgrounds? Maybe humans are getting stupider over time...

"with video abilities"

Sounds like a 1980's kids cartoon/toy advert.

Apple doesn't bombard my inbox with ads, or sell my info to ad agencies

And I bought my iPhone for £136 new, 32gb of storage, and it's a phone as well as a mp4player/music player

It did though...?

P sure it was the sheet back in the day. It just got outdone pretty quickly. Bad timing, if you ask me.

Never owned a Zune, but I'm pretty sure it didn't hold a candle to the old iPod/iPod Touches at the time.

Well, look at it this way, the Zune was retarded enough that it bricked itself for 24 hours at the very start of 2009, because it's clock drivers couldn't handle the super-rare and unanticipated event of IT BEING A LEAP YEAR.

And then there's the squircle controls from 2nd gen. If the visuals look lke a kid from the bus with strawberry flavoured windows came up with it, you're in trouble stacked against Apple's cleaner, less fucking developmentally challenged design.

The iPod was already well on its way to dominating the market by the time Zune gained any traction whatsoever.

Rather a minor bug than an overpriced hipster brick that can explode in 2009. I had a Zune through that time period and I don't remember any such leap year bug.

Don't knock the squircle until you've tried it. As if I'd want finger smudges on the screen anyway (probably more easily crackable on the apple). A dirty machine for dirty people...

can it play flac files?

no well fuck off then


Why would I want to play budget ass FLAC files when I can stream WMA Lossless, the only real lossless format. Only 16mb for a CD of that. Another example of a Jobs blower not knowing that superior tech is right under their noses

>superior tech
>using a device that's incorporated into newer tech as standard

Pleb

Also all you need is an Apple ID, apples version of a Microsoft account, and even that's only needed to use the App Store. I used my iPhone for a week literally out of the box before doing that. Another case of a mindless hater, hating on something they've never used

I only got my original iPhone because my aunt got an upgrade and gave her old one to me, because the android piece of shit I had died a month after the warranty expired (second time that happened, although the first was still somewhat usable with app work arounds). That iPhone lasted me as long as the androids had, and was already 3 years old when I got it

I lost all faith in Microsoft when the windows 10 forced update killed my laptop, i couldn't reset it without a serial key and seeing as the laptop came with 8.1 as standard I didn't have one. Microsoft killed my working laptop during my busiest uni semester, then all the data hoarding stuff came out and I had a good laugh as I was already using Linux by that point

Also there are far better, and cheaper, MP4 players than the zune. I considered getting a zune but they were already being blown out of the water by other mp4s. I had an x-fire something or other that had 32gb of internal memory and was £25 cheaper than the zune at the time. Plus it worked out of the box, you didn't need any accounts, just a computer to put music on it and it worked

Also wasn't zune Microsofts music streaming thing? I remember the 360 shoving a load of ads in my face about it back in the day, or were they advertising their own product on another one of their products? If so that's super lame

Also also the wii had tilt tech, it's hardly revolutionary

You do remember that this is the same guy that bragged about being on a TV show... where he got rejected by the girl of his dreams. He probably brags about getting caught cheating on open note quizzes or getting fines for littering.

Tbh I didn't even know he was on a tv show until a few days ago. Much less any of these details.

My mom still has one. I loaded her songs when it first came out and she didn't need an update since
She listens to it on the bus, and uses mostly the radio, I think.
For the most part, I remember really hating the Zune software and the way you have to sync everything thru Microsoft software instead of just drag and drop on an external hard drive. I think there were people drinking the Apple coolaid at the time and usually those are for the most part users that can't be bothered to learn anything working in a different way, so it is only the Apple way.
The rest of the users, Windows and Linux, for the most part at that time had open players (I still do) that were attaching as a hard drive and you didn't need software to tell you what to do with it. M$ essentially locked themselves out of the Windows market with their Zune by making it closed format and forcing you to use its stupid software.

I always wanted a zune but never got a chance to get my hands on one, and by the time I was old enough to afford one, I got a hand-me-down 16 gig iPod. Never looked back. These days I use my iPhone to sync all my albums, and having everything in one place, one device makes life simpler.

I use a 60GB iPod Video. First thing I did was install different firmware on it, so I just plug it in and drop files on it. And it plays FLAC. Finally replaced the internal battery earlier this year.
