now first off let me tell you that I was looking forward to the zune competing with the ipod.
now other than the obvious downfalls sucha as a clickwheel loking thing that doesnt turn, and wifi that doesnt do anything other than share songs from zune to zune (songs that you can only keep for 3 days or 3 plays whichever comes first)
the real reason I hate the Zune is because anyone who buys a zune is paying Vivendi Universal. Microsoft actually pays a portion of the sales of the Zune HARDWARE to Vivendi Universal admitting that yes piracy is probably going to occur because of this media player.
theirs no doubt in my mind that Vivendi Universal will try to get a piece of the ipod and any other mp3 player that comes out.
