Two Zunes arrived…

It’s Zune day. Despite my being harsh, two Zunes arrived tonight for me to play with. I didn’t ask for them. Edelman sent them over. Very nice of them. It says I can keep one, if I want, or I can send them both back (they included postage-paid return box). One of them is just so I can test out the music sharing part of the Zune.

Ahh, it’s 12:21 p.m. — zune it’ll be Zune time. Heheh.

First I gotta go through my feeds for my link blog. There’s a TON of great stuff on the feeds today.

Comments

  1. Robert I think the ZUne is cooler than the IPOD. Your lucky to get it free. I am sure if it was Apple who sent some cool new product you would have jumped for joy and given a immediate lengthy positive review.

  7. The Zune is awesome. The Zune is cool. My son loves the Zune. I’m not saying this just because I received my Zune for free. No way. This is the freaking best media player in the world. Here’s why it’s cool:
    - the Zune is a media player
    - the Zune uses software
    - the Zune is brown. The brown is a conversation starter
    - the Zune has WiFi. Since I have two free Zunes, I can Zune from one to the other on the WiFi
    - did I mention it is free

    Watch out Apple iPod. Here comes Zune. I predict Apple will go out of business zune. Microsoft has it right. Giving away Zune players is a brilliant business plan. Getting objective reviews and research from bloggers and thinktanks is the way to go.

    Zune! Zune! Zune! (sorry Mazda, you’re 0wn3d by MS Zune now)

  10. Jake: actually I got a brown and a black one.

    What will really be interesting is when I see my son next and ask him what he thinks. He has an 80GB iPod that he paid his own money for. I seriously doubt he’ll give me his iPod in exchange for a Zune.

  13. I have to run out and buy one tonight. Promised my smart, but scolastically bored teen if he got at least B’s for just once in his life I would get him one (thats what he said he wanted…. says the biggest thing is since its CE based he knows Microsoft will be doing cool updates and he is betting on 3rd party add-ons…. he is on his 3rd Pocket PC and has all kinds of stuff on that. He slammed his grades with no fighting on my part which I consider a miracle. I guess you could say the Zune is educational. ;-)

  16. I still cannot believe that the software doesn’t work on Vista. Not like Vista was released without any sort of notice. I like the GUI on the device but there are so many lacking features I think they should have waited until they had a killer feature.

    Also MS ‘the platform company’ needs to think about what this is going to do to its partner relationships. How much investment will WMP get now? Especially the online store features.

  19. “What will really be interesting is when I see my son next and ask him what he thinks.”

    You already asked him and he said it sucked. Do we really have to hear that again? We get it. Your son thinks it sucks (and therefore it does, right?). No need to repeat it.

  22. Lemme see if I understand Edleman’s logic: “Hey! Let’s send a Zune to Scoble. He used to work for Microsoft, still owns stock in the company, and
    more importan, he now works in the vblogging business and the Zune doesn’t support podcasting. So, I think it would be GREAT to get his unbiased opinion.” Do I have that right?

  25. LayZ: I don’t think they cared WHAT I wrote about Zune. It just adds to the salad.

    But, I have shown it to more than 20 people so far.

    They are getting their money’s worth.

  28. @13 Heath, just start writing glowing reviews for products. Say that a new generation 3 product is coming out that you want. Write a great review for the generation 2 product and other products that gizmo co. makes. Set up a bunch of dummy blogs and link to your reviews.

    Before you know it, you’ll be deemed an authoritative blogger on gizmo cos products and you’ll start getting things to review.

  31. [...] Скоблу прислали Zune в количестве двух экземпляров, чтобы он поигрался. Если понравится, может оставить, независимо от его мнения. У нас тоже начинается подобная практика, правда частенько компании пытаются ставить условия вроде “оставить нельзя, только поиграться”, “писать только позитив” и т.п. На это соглашаться, конечно, не надо – “джинсы” и без этого хватает… [...]
