Awww... shucks. NOT!  

Had to Google what a 'Zune' was as I had forgotten. "ugly brown one"... sorry, but couldn't help but think of another shit stain from the M$ annals.   :lol:

I thought you were talking about Aros' GUI toolkit, the MUI clone "Zune". Thankfully it's just some unpopular Micro$oft crap.

I can't say I have ever seen one. Not even in a shop.

Was a great device, actually better than the ipod. But ppl are blinded by anything Apple, a shame as my Sony MP3 player has more options and better sound.

The Apple marketing isteam engine powers on.

For a minute there I thought some legendary jazz musician had died, glad to know it's just a piece of MickySoft crap... :D

My sony Ericsson W995 Walkman phone is probably the single best bit of kit I have ever had.  

Absolutely essential.

I had an 80 GB Zune, second edition, not the shitty brown ones.  Was a super piece of kit, loved it, but it died after 10 months and I just went to an iPhone.

The little HD from the Zune is now in my UAE rig, lol.

Zune for Windows 7 phone rocks.... I'd go without music if I had to use that god awful piece of dung they call itunes.  I realize though we were talking of older hardware of which I have no idea.

Its bad enough on apple products but the real joy is using the Windows version.... hmm, let's cripple it so bad and make it real flaky to make OSX look better.... sad.

I'm taking some high-level CAD classes right now and when one guy asked if there was a Mac version the whole class of Engineers erupted in laughter. :)

I agree.  I palmed my iPhone off onto my wife and bought a Windows 7 phone instead.  Using Zune was a breath of fresh air compared to the pain of iTunes.

I never used Zune hardware, but the software is very user-friendly and functional.  Try and drag an AVI movie onto your iPhone using iTunes and then drag an AVI movie onto your Windows 7 phone using Zune...

Great phone :) Sony getting together with Ericsson was a good move, loved the walkman phone idea.
