Where’s Jason Calacanis when you need him?

Hey Jason! Speaking of transparency, ethics and disclosure, what do you think about this article in the Washington post slamming iPods and talking up Creative’s MuVo? Bad enough to do the hype on the MuVo without disclosure, but the slam on a competitor, too?

Hey, the guy is entitled to his opinion, right? I’m sure he’s being as honest as can be in expressing it. Except that he forgot to mention that Creative is a sponsor of his mountain climbing efforts.

Is this that vaunted blogosphere we are accused of polluting? Hmmmm. On the Washington Post, no less. Aren’t they one of the “good guys”?


Evil One

Update: Perhaps Mr. Mueller should take the Blog Honor Pledge. Or maybe the Washington Post. Or both.

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

Choosing the best flight sim with lots of features is not the end. Even when all the system requirements are met to play the game but sill players are facing Sims 3 Late Night errors. There is much more to this expansion, and little nuances that will change the way Sims interact, and home decor.

Messaging package along with graphics is available, listening to different music patterns or for a change listening to polyphonic ring tones producing natural music, Li-ion battery of 1150m – Ah is an extraordinary battery holding the recharging for months. One of my new favorite games to play while I work is Sims 3. And finding out the most recent programs and their appeals is something of a dilemma when you want to play the one you found last week.

26 good info August 22, 2014 at 1:15 pm

The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

27 Milo Koehne August 22, 2014 at 1:37 pm

I have learned newer and more effective things through your site. One other thing I want to say is that often newer computer system operating systems are inclined to allow more memory to be utilized, but they also demand more memory simply to perform. If one’s computer is unable to handle much more memory as well as newest application requires that memory space increase, it could be the time to shop for a new Personal computer. Thanks
