I'm a proud owner of a red 2nd generation 80GB Zune. I was wondering if anyone else owned one and/or had a Zune Profile.

Questions? Comments? Pie?

I like pie.

I was about to buy a Zune because I hate Apple with all my heart, but I had to renew my XM subscription.

I have had my share of digital music players, but I tend to sell them after a month of use.

I see, I see.

My boyfriend got the first generation 30GB Zune and let me borrow it during Finals Week and I fell in love with the iPod Killer. (I'm referring to the Zune btw ;))

It's a very superb device, the only thing it lacks is a clock.

I don't have one, but I'm interested. And I have and like my ipod very much. I'm just interested in the bigger screen and the FM tuner. But I love using itunes to easily synch/organize my music.

I don't need a new one right now, though.

That's cool. The bigger screen is advantageous since the quality of the movies are amazing. I would say they're very HD-ish. The FM tuner works well and it receives very good reception even in the middle of nowhere.

I've never used iTunes, but I will say that the Zune Marketplace is convenient and can be easily organized depending on how you want it.

Wireless synching is a great feature as well.

iTunes is a resource hog. anything that can be used with little or no extra software is a plus.

Are the zune socials essentially another myspace, or what's up there?

Zune Social-izing is a way of sharing music with eachother or seeing who shares common music interests with you. It's not so much of a myspace, but more so of a meeting of the minds.

Wireless syncing, eh? That sounds nice.

Yessir.

I try and keep it off when it's not in use to save battery though. It doesn't drain it, but I just like to conserve.

Just don't buy any DRM-protected music from the Zune store and you'll be fine. Stick with 100% MP3 so you can move it off to a new player once Microsoft kills off the Zune.

Good lookin' out, Anthem.

I double checked all of my music and it was all natural 100% MP3.

My MP3's were given growth hormone as baby MP1's - should I be concerned?

I got one of the 8GB flash ones a couple weeks ago. I love it. I would never buy anything Apple because I hate that socialist company too. Maybe I should have gotten the bigger one so I would be able to watch videos a little better but I probably won't do that. It's great, I highly recommend getting one.

The only place to BUY Mp3s is Amazon. I won't buy anywhere else now. High Quality and DRM free, cheaper than every place else.

I'd strongly recommend getting a 30GB or 80GB Zune if you plan on watching movies, shows, etc.

The 4GB and 8GB are still good for music, books on tape, podcasts, etc though.
