Oh, and I have to say that it seems 99% of the kids in my school who have an MP3 player have an iPod. I hate it SO MUCH, because Apple is buttraping them. They have no idea what a gigabyte is, they just buy iPods because they are like, DUDE, and totally, like, OH, my GOD. It's just cuz its, like, cool, and *head explodes*.

Zen is my personal favorite, the bang for buck is the best out of any of them. They're not as high quality as a Zune, but they are certainly more cost efficient.

Creative Zen FTW!

Hm, well I disagree. I love my iPhone. It's so easy to use. I had first gotten an iPod touch and it was SO easy to use. I was at Best Buy yesterday and out of curiosity I went to go see what the Zune was like. First off I found that the "ZunePad" was very hard to use and navigation was confusing, and the design also turned me off. And I noticed the Zune can't even tell time. Seriously, what electrical device nowadays doesn't tell time? As for sound quality and etc I couldn't really test.

ive got a zune, works great and i cant say i regret it at all. the monthly plan allows me to get more music than i normally would have (dollar per song is a bit over my limit) and the device itself is pretty nifty

I'm getting a 120GB Zune for Christmas. I mainly decided to get this over an Ipod Touch Because of the larger storage space, and the 15$ a month music plan. Also I'll probably use it as part storage as it connects to your PC like a drive so you can pull files off of it at your leisure which I heard the ipod doesn't allow without some use of 3rd party software.

To me, all the apps and stuff are great, but the question is will I use them enough to make them worth it? And will I be willing to search for a wifi hotspot to make full use of most of the apps I would get? Probably not in my case.

In the end the zune does what I need.

"it's the biggest price of BS I have ever read"

its not BS its an honest opinion, dont let your fanboism and love for a piece of fruit cloud your opinions of competitors products, bigger screen and more space for less money is great.

Just read the article (soz for second post) and to be honest, it's the biggest price of BS I have ever read, I'm not an apple fanboy, my touch isy first apple product ever. But it is just better than the zune in EVERY way. Games, multitouch screen, acellerometer, light sensor, Internet, big screen, looks sexy as hell and loads more features. I have an 8gb one, I have 7 films 500 pics, my entire collection of music. And I still have 4gb left. So why the hell would I need 120gb of stuff?!?

"he basically said that because zune is cheaper with a bigger screen, and it can hold more...that its better. lol great journalism and investigation /sarcasm"

no, he said that everything else was on par with eachother, sound quality, video quality etc. Therefore it comes down to price.

"I have an iPod touch... its not the greatest thing ever but... come on a zune?

Lets compare it to a real mp3 player "

what would you call a real MP3 player. I've never owned a zune, but as far as im aware their pretty good, just a little over priced like ipod. What would you consider to be a real mp3 player, seeing as you own one of the infamously pooe but still people keep on buying them ipods?

God forbbid any one say ANYTHING bad about the Holy iPod! Look, I know iPods are cool and trendy, but you have to look at things with an open mind.[...]"

You can play Fieldrunners on your DS? You can bowl on your DS? You can access a virtually unlimited number of applications from your DS? You can pop drating bubble wrap on you DS? You can access the Internet on your DS?

Cleaning the screen isn't necessary if you wipe off the Cheeto dust BEFORE you touch the damn thing.

I've never used a Zune, so I can't say anything about it. But, personally, I LOVE my 16Gb touch. The one thing is that the battery runs out kinda fast. But that's fixed for free.

I complealty agree that iPod is winning when it comes to mp3 players, but the ithouch is not as great as people say. Sure you get "games", but I can get any of those games and much better ones on my DS. It has a large screen, but that's only useful if you can pick which music or movies you want to leave at home. A touch screen is pointless. Slightly easier navigation is not worth a screen i have to clean every time i use it. I would rather pay for an iPod video or a zune, because lets face it, is what you get on an ithouch really worth it? I have had tons of mp3 players by different brands, and just because apple says buy it dosent mean you should

I'm not surprised. People just buy their ipod because it's an ipod and ipod is awesome. I don't agree. In fact i've yet to see an apple product that impresses me. As far as MP3 players go i've always held iRiver as #1.

"Painter13: Actually with the cell phone tech, both mp3's are soon to be obsolete."

That's only true if you forget the fact that there is no liability from the service providers who sell you the cell phone and the manufacturer who created the cell phone. The end concequence of this: You need to send your phone get repaired everytime it's defective and if the defect keeps on comming back ( But the phone is not broken ) they just keep on sending it for repairs untill your waranty is over. Then you have to pay for a new cell phone. Everytime you buy a cell phone you risk getting ripped off if the cell phone happens to be a defective one.

My zune was a complete waste of $250. Complete. I have an Ipod Touch and I don't even use it JUST as an ipod, I use it as a computer on the go and a gaming system. I even have a Katamari game on it.
