I got my ipod 5.5G 30GB a week before the clssaic came out, and used itunes alot, I've found myself using itunes less and less. When I get anothe player, I'll get a zune 2 (the old zune looked horrible imo) but this looks really good. I like the menu and the clarity of the screen and the reviews say that the headphone quality is excellent. BUT microsoft won't release it in the UK yet
Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently haempred by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass' favor.
