words about words

So far I have to say my zune RAWKS. Maybe I should have taken pictures of opening the box like Kotaku or Joystiq, but I was too excited. Trust me it was a very cool "out of box experience" as they say.
I got the 3 month zune pass, and am going through and checking out all the playlists. I really like the way the zune marketplace populates the little window as you type in your search term. I also really really like the look and feel. The first thing I downloaded was the Hello from Seattle playlist from KEXP. I LOVE how each zune says Hello from Seattle on the back.
My big mouth has gotten me into trouble from time to time, but I’m going to go ahead and confess that when I heard about this zune project I was very very sceptical. I mean, we’ve got freaking smart, cool people working on it, but it takes…shall we say…moxie to take on iPod.
And you guys KNOW I love my iPod…I talk about it all the time, post my playlists, etc.
But I’m going to tell you straight up: I am really really impressed with zune. Will it be the iPod killer? I don’t know and I don’t really give a crap; I’m having a great time with mine.
Here’s me, my zune, and my evil kitten.

    Hey, pink-Zune buddy! All the boys are so afraid of pink. They all got orange. Wussies.
    I had a Zune cozy for you yesterday but I gave them all away. No worries. I shall knit you another.

    "Here’s me, my zune, and my evil kitten."ROFL, what’s wrong with cats and pics? Mine looked evil as well, whenever i was taking a picture of her :)I have a few good photos though 😉 (specially when it is sleeping :P) you think boys should pick pink whenever possible? It looks like, well, ehm…, a girl’s choice… or at least that’s the "standard" way to think 🙂

    I had a chance to check out a Zune today and I have to say I was impressed.  However, having 34Gb of music, before the 10gb of video, makes the current offering ‘sub optimal for my needs’.  Also, what is up with Orange as the ‘special color’?  I still have my orange XB1 Memory Unit around here from Beta.  Why not bright green or silver?

    3 cuties in the photo, thanks for sharing. I want a zune, but then again I want it all.

    Your kitty not evil, my kitty evil. Reminder: he managed to rotate my display settings by 90 degrees just by walking across the keyboard…
    He has also taken to jumping from my dresser, into the closet and sitting on the top shelf. Bad kitty.I want to meet Roxy damnit.

    I’m digging the Zune, too. I got a white one. I LOVE the device and can’t stand the marketplace. I hope you didn’t pay for your Zune pass with your own money. Gheesh, trix. Don’t support that junk. Let it quietly fail so we can put the whole DRMd music fiasco behind us. I still find it hard to believe anyone still buys that stuff. I suppose the fact that the utilities to strip the DRM off is so readily available is what keeps it a semi-viable product. For those who dont know, MS’s newest DRM is cracked. Theres development money well spent, huh?
    Since I’m in the trenches fighting against DRM and closed systems I’ll offer you up some advice on better ways to buy music.
    With the money you spent for your 3 month limited listening rights you could have got 7 CD’s from Yourmusic and not supported the offencive business model that harms both Artists and consumers.
    I better go, this topic just sends me into a frenzy.
    Good day!…  I said Goodday!

    Got a Brown Zune for the wife and a Black one for myself.  I’m really loving this thing.  I put all my game trailers and home vids on there as well as my zune pass stuff.  It’s a cool little device.
