    Review: Zune HD

    But what did he see in the clear stream below? His own image; no longer a dark, gray bird, ugly and disagreeable to look at, but a graceful and beautiful swan. —The Ugly Duckling It’s been a long, brown trip for the Zune: from its early days (mocked and abject) to its awkward years (deemed a dead end and money pit) it’s been embattled and criticized, and rightly so. After all… Read More

  • What's holding me back from buying a Zune HD: the lack of 3rd-party support

    What's holding me back from buying a Zune HD: the lack of 3rd-party support

    I haven't heard one major complaint about the Zune HD. Have you? Everyone seems to love it. My only iPod - the original iPod Mini - needs to be retired. I'm debating between the iPod touch and the Zune HD right now. The rebellious side in me wants to get the Microsoft Zune HD, which is kind of ironic if you think about it. However, the sensible side says that the iPod touch is the smart buy… Read More

What do you have to lose, Zune HD owners? Download 'em like you just don't care! It will be interesting to see the type of apps developers make for the Zune HD.

    Zune HD's UI: the full tour

    The Zune HD is upon us, and whether you love it or hate it, you have to admit that it is devilishly good-looking. I happen to think it’s also a great media player, based on my day with it and on previous demos, but the final judgment will come in a day or two with the full review. In the meantime, I’m sure a lot of people have been waiting on a decent walkthrough of the Zune HD’s… Read More

  • What, if anything, is stopping you from leaving your iPod for the Zune?

    What, if anything, is stopping you from leaving your iPod for the Zune?

    A comment from earlier in the day sparked a bit of a conversation in the official CrunchGear chat room: what's to stop someone from ditching the iTunes-iPod “universe” and switching to the Zune HD? (We're all pretty keen on the Zune HD for whatever reason.) Those of you with iPhones are pretty much stuck using iTunes, but what's to stop someone from saying, “You know, I've used an iPod in… Read More

    Yes, we have the Zune HD; Yes, it's awesome

    The full review will come later in the week, but I wanted to put up my own shots of the Zune HD just so you know it’s here in my hot little hands. After some initial difficulties it is now blasting music into my ear and I’m about to sync some HD Marketplace content onto it. So until I get my video review all put together, feast your eyes on this sexy little machine. Gallery ahoy! Read More

    The Xbox Series Zune HD slaps video game logos all over the damn place

    If we're being honest—and we always are here on CrunchGear, if nothing else—then I do have to admit that the Zune HD looks pretty spiffy. Apple's event came and went, and I'm absolutely burned out on the iPod. (The last one I bought was the fat nano, back in 2007.) With my fancy new Windows installation all set up, though, there's nothing stopping me from jumping on board the Zune HD… Read More

    Of course the Zune HD has been torn apart and photographed

    It’s a tradition around these parts to photograph a dissected gadget. This time around it’s the new Zune HD which looks just as good on the inside as it does on the outside. Hit up anythingbutipod for the complete gallery of the teardown. Read More

    Zune update in 60…59…58… (now)

    Reminder! That Zune HD launch is hitting tomorrow, and I guarantee they’re going to be at least trying to roll the new 4.0 software out at midnight. I’m spending my Monday night drinking beer and refreshing zune.net, why aren’t you? All right, I also watched Gossip Girl. On accident! Anyway, the new stuff they’ve got coming is hot. I’ll post a full unboxing and tour… Read More
