    What do you have and if you have both which do you like better?

    I have an iPod (iPhone) and I love it. I also have a second gen shuffle. The ease of use, the flow with iTunes and my Mac, who could ask for anything more?

    I have played with a Zune before. They are nice, too.

    I have to stick with Apple on this one.

    I have an iPod Nano 2G & I like it a lot...:)

    The one thing I really like about my iPod is iTunes. It makes it really easy to make playlists & I can listen to my music while I'm on the computer...:D

    Buying music & video is easy, too. iTunes takes paypal, & that's good...;)

    i use frostwire-zune has the market place(like itunes i guess)the only thing i like about the software is being able to organize and edit my mp3's-when i had a stiletto the sirius software drove me nuts-the only thing u could do with it was check for updates
  6. I have gone through several iPods and I have loved them all. I really like my iTouch alot but that is mostly due to the fact that I have TV shows on there and such. However, the down side is that if I want songs on my iTunes to play on my stiletto 2 I have to change the songs format. I have a 2gb card for my stiletto and it can hold a bunch of songs, but it just takes a while for me to change their format. Call my lazy and impatient I guess. I think a zune would work best for me in this case because the song formats will work for both. But I just love my iTouch way too much. I think both Zune and Apple make great players. It's just a matter of what you need them for.

    I remember my first MP3 player was a Sansa Connect, which worked with Yahoo Music Service. It was a great little device. I used it a while, but eventually upgraded to an iPod.

    I have a sister that has a Zune and she totally loves it. I've messed with it a time or two, its has a really cool interface and the Zune Software is really nice.

    I had a iPod nano for about a year, before the screen worked. I had hacked that thing to hell, too. I had ipod linux on it, had doom installed, and video working just fine, before there was a ipod nano with video. It was pretty nice.

    After it broke, I was without an mp3 player of some time, and saw the zune on sale for 90 or so bucks at radioshack on black friday. So I picked it up and have been enjoying it for almost a year now. Microsoft keeps updating even the older ones like mine with the new firmware so all the zunes get updates and features regaurdless. I just bought a zunepass and have been downloading entire albums like crazy. It's fantastic. Can't wait to see what else is coming.

    I like them both equally, I guess. It's hard to say.

    I use a little $20 MP3 player for jogging/gym stuff. My brother's g/f has a zune and really likes it. I would probably tend towards zune myself just because Apple products tend to be over priced (imo).

    That is true, but you get high quality products IMO.

    My MacBook was expensive. :cool:

  11. I remember I bought my first MP3 player in 2001. It was made by Creative, not sure what model, but it had AM/FM and it only had 32mb of memory. I think it was 200.00 dollars. It was SD expandable, but a 256mb was 150.00 bucks. Its crazy how far portable audio devices have come in such a short time.

    Yeah, I had an old creative player way back when. I remember seeing the 1st gen ipod on the shelves and thinking how big and bulky they were (not to mention expensive!). I used that thing for years until it finally gave up and stopped working.

    I've been through a few ipods and each time I want to upgrade I made sure to look at all the players out there. I liked the Zune, but it still didn't have the slick interface of the Ipod. I'm not an Apple fan at all but their GUI is really first class.

    I have a 5.5 G iPod Video 80G. The black one. Those black ones were the boss.

    Me too....My wife bought me my first mp3 player in 2000 or 2001. It was a Rio, 32mb. I could barely fit a whole album on the damn thing. It didn't work for very long, batteries didn't last. After that I got one of those Sony mini disc players. I used that for about a year or so then got a 2gb ipod nano. I loved the ipod right away. Had the nano for a year then got a 30gb ipod video. Then when the ipod classics came out I got an 80gb classic. I think thats the one I'll be using for a long time to come.

    We have 2 nanos and the girls like them. I have been looking for something with better sound, leaning toward the Sony Walkman. I read the reviews posted here.
