IMO, iPods are a status icon. They're screens are shit, they break really easy. I have a creative zen vision: m. Very nice, longer battery life, better screen, and looks good. The zune got my vote though, it kicks ass too.

I don't want to vote for the zune because I don't think that The Zune is going to take off too fast and I don't really care for it that much
mostly because of the silly WiFi file sharing thing where the files are destroyed after 3 days
That's flippin retarded

I don't want to vote for any of the Ipods because I happen to think that It's not the best PMP out there.
It pisses me off to great extents when people use Ipod in place of MP3 player...
want a nano? get a frickin' SanDisk 8GB
it at least has a replacable battery

I sold my Ipod Video 60 GB because I really couldn't stand it
someone gave it to me as a gift
and I sold it and bought a 30GB Zen Vision:M
so far it's been treating me very well:)
the fact that I don't have to convert my videos all the time is very convenient
and the screen is awesome
when i was in Germany I was able to record the Radio and bring it back to show my friends how silly it sounded
I also got the chance to go hang out with a Heavy Metal band in Germany
By the name of Cataphractus if you're interested
they have a myspace... but I forget what the link is
and yea.. the Microphone let me record them while they practiced
Brought that back
I only wish that the mic could have handled the amount of noise
I tried to cover it with something to muffle the sound... but it didn't work
They just rocked way too much sad.gif

And yea...
I left with only a 128MB memory stick for my camera...
I took a lot of pictures
I was able to use my Zen Vision as a cool storage device...
and I was able to use it to look @ the pictures aswell

when I first arived in Germany, I couldn't speak ANY German
so to do complex things on a computer was hard
I knew some of the menus but not all of them.
I put some portable apps on my Zen Vision and was able to run them through the player.

I know that an Ipod can do all these things... but one thing I was the most glad about...
I was no longer attatched to iTunes.
The god awful P.O.S. software that sucked up all my PC resources...
and didn't do anything I wanted
I think i can safely say that iTunes was the worst piece of Software that I've ever used in my whole life
and It would have killed me if I continued to use it.

Every day I'm thankful that I don't have to deal with it
It's like my ex-girlfriend
I mean... I loved her...
but she wasn't everything I needed from a girl
and her insane mother was kinda the extra little thing that made me want out
and every day I'm thankful that I don't have to deal with her anymore

so I guess I'll go with the Zune

i have had my hands on both, i personally think they are both garbage. They make better mp3/video players. It may not be made by aPle or m$ but they do everything those do and more... what fun is 30+ gig of portable storage if you can only put media on it?

I want to be able to use the storage. I know you can mod them or in the zunes case trick it into letting you but thats useless. Anyhow if you wanna spend money go with the zune over the p.o.s. oops i meant zune. it does have a nice screen. biggrin.gif

Had a Zune for about 14 hrs before I took it back. Could only take so much pissin' w/ the software before I wanted to cry. Givin, Itunes isn't the greatest program, atleast it works.

Zune will be 10x better when the fix all the bugs. Give it a yr.

Zune winning, really? That was a shocker! Ipod video and Anapod for me. Itunes is terrible.

Yeah, Itunes is terrible...Anapod is a much better program interface. I cannot stand auto-sync on iTunes.

I do want the Zune when they crack the firmware, someone has been working on several applications for it already (portable WiFi Mass Storage Device for PSP's using certain homebrew applications, I could store tons of games, music, and video without buying a huge memory stick smile.gif)

That Cowon looks pretty nice too smile.gif

Zune's are great. For the price it has everything I need. And until homebrew stuff comes out or Microsoft comes out with updates I have no problem converting my videos.
