Unhappy Who got the turd (brown Zune) for Christmas?

Talk about a lump of coal, who got a brown Zune for Christmas? Really, who's parents wouldn't spring the extra $10 for the real deal? Apple sold about 15 million iPods this season, Microsoft sold four Zunes. Who got em? I want to name names.

Who among you got the big brown turd? Worse yet, who's parents out there saved yet another $10 and got you a white Zune? Did your friends ask what you got for Christmas and did you neglect to mention the Turd?

Even worse, did your brother get an iPod and you got the Zune just so you two wouldn't have the same thing? Which one of you are held in such low esteem that you got a Zune for Christmas? Who among you has been plunking quarters into the Microsoft slot for those Zune Tune credits? Just curious. I don't want to make you feel bad or anything, I just want to know what thoughtless sub-human figured you were worthy of a Zune.

WOW! are you an apple/ipod zealot or what? I don't like the zune either, but that doesn't mean that it sucks. Are you joking around or are you just an A$$? It serves no purpose to just announce that something sucks in your opinion. I'm sure other people think the iPod sucks and the Zune is a cool brown color.

If I received a brown Zune for Christmas I would happily load up my CD music and use it as a secondary player. Watching video on it is a better experience from what I hear. It's a pity the Zune is straddled down by poor software and the need for points to purchase music.

P.S. I think this thread is in the wrong forum and doesn't serve a purpose.

Well nothing if it were the first device of its type on the market. It's just that it was touted as the "iPod killer" and it fell so woefully short of the mark.

Yes, it is. In the same vein as the offerings made by Creative, Toshiba (who makes the Zune btw) Sandisk and others. Nice players, but not iPod killers. M$ built up WAY too much hype and are now going to have to work to live up to it.

That being said, this IS an iPod forum.

What a stupid troll this is. Get a life, nx2e. You can keep yourself plenty busy over the next two weeks helping all the newbs that got iPods and can't make them work (it happens every Christmas). Do something positive for a change.
