"Microsoft, which had access to as much hardware development expertise as any company in the world and the capital to support a massive marketing budget for new products failed completely in its attempt to get a large part of the iPod market."
For the nth time tool. Who cares what it "weighs in at"? Zune owners can attest to the fact that it is a superior product. Just because the country is filled with idiots who don't know any better does not take away from that fact.
I notice that Microsoft must be paying attention to these message boards because it appears they are finally paying attention to the idea that I've been constantly drilling--IT'S ALL ABOUT THE ZUNE PASS! They are launching new ads it appears that should appeal to anyone with an iota of brain mass. Why would anyone in their right minds pay .99 cents and up for a song when they can pay $14.99 a month and get access to millions?
Hopefully, more people will stumble their way out of the Apple orchard and realize how much money they can be saving.
