…followed by herd of flying pigs.
Chicago Sun-Times columnist, Andy Ihnatko writes a devastating review of the Zune after spending a week with the iPod competitor.
The Zune is a complete, humiliating failure. Toshiba’s Gigabeat player, for example, is far more versatile, it has none of the Zune’s limitations, and Amazon sells the 30-gig model for 40 bucks less.
Throw in the Zune’s tail-wagging relationship with music publishers, and it almost becomes important that you encourage people not to buy one.
Gee, Andy, tell us what you really think.
I will forgive Andy for reciting the Apple mantra, “The iPod owns 85 percent of the market” because he just had to spend a week with a Zune. (Apple controls under 20% of the MP3/media player market when one considers the fastest growing media players – musicphones. Read this post.)
