  1. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon every day. It’s always interesting to read articles from other writers and use something from other websites.

  2. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  3. This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit aand your videos, I was amost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  4. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  5. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.
