Microsoft Aims to Try Again with Zune…

October 3, 2007 at 9:38 am 2 comments

Microsoft is aiming to try again with their so-called social-networking Godly chubby Zune, another iPod competitor that has been bitten by the dust. This time, instead of taking a one-model approach, Microsoft blatantly copies Apple with a new family of Zunes. A 4GB/8GB flash Zune that also plays videos will retail for $149/$199,while the newer 80GB Zune will retail for $249 (sound familiar?). The “phat” Zune will retail at $199, though I’m unsure anybody still wants one of these. New features include a Zune social networking system, wireless syncing, the official ‘Zunepad’ for scrolling through menus, and increased video codec support. This is all….nice, but the old Zune will enable all of these new features through a swanky firmware upgrade. Seeing that the few dozens who bought the original did not care about the fatness, what makes Microsoft think that a newer, thinner line of models would attract the same buyers and even new buyers?

    Man Microsoft is a huge leech off of Apple. The only thing that’s been SEMI original is the Microsoft Surface. That isn’t exactly an item that’s going to revolutionize an industry.
