This article says the zune sucks. They even give the top 10 reasons why:
- It’s just as proprietary and closed as the iPod
- It won’t work with any of the other Microsoft PlaysForSure Music Stores
- You can’t use Windows Media Player to load the Zune with Music
- Built in Wifi connects you to other Zune’s only – not wireless networks
- You can share songs with other Zune’s over wifi, but they will auto-delete after 3 days, and you can NEVER send them to that person again
- It even imposes DRM and 3 day sharing limits to files YOU create add to your Zune – like mp3’s from your garage band
- You can share music and photos with other Zune’s over wifi – but NOT video
- The Zune store doesn’t sell tv shows, movies, audio books, or have podcasts
- There are no additional apps, no stopwatch, no clock, no address book, etc.
- It comes in brown. Are they advertising it’s a turd?!?
Does Microsoft have any hope of a successful launch with this thing?
