Zune 80 Review

In the past several months since the second generation of Zunes went on sale, Microsoft has been busy addressing longstanding complaints about the Zune and its software: version 2.5 adds auto playlists, gapless playback, and other features that the iPod (and several other players) have had for awhile. With that in mind, we take a quick look at the Zune 80 and the new software not only to see whether they've truly caught up to iPods, but also to find out whether this Zune truly stands up against its smaller Zune 4 and 8 cousins.

    I still don't get...

    Microsoft's crazy "wireless-sync" feature, which isn't actually wireless. While you don't have to be connected to the computer, you HAVE to be connected to a power cable. You have to be too lazy to walk to the computer in the next room, but not lazy enough to walk to the power adapter you keep in the same room? Then there's the 'squirt' feature, which is a 1 in a billion shot of being within range of another Zune user...

    What does this have to do with MacNN? Or Macs in general?

    Well this is "electronista" so they can cover the Zune if they want to. Why I don't know. Its just another blatant, disgusting, arrogant device from MS to try and corner another market, because Apple is successful with it. They'll lose millions just to try and win a market. What business sense does that make?

    Re: slappy

    I guess you think that no site should cover any product not made by Apple, since, as I've read here over and over, everything is a blatant rip-off of some Apple product.
