[Product Review] Miscrosoft Zune - 4GB

Zunesucks.jpg

Early last week I got an email telling me to keep my eye out for a special package containing a pea green 4GB Microsoft Zune that I was supposed to take for a spin and review. I was actually very excited about this and looked forward to comparing the Zune to my beloved iPod. But that was before I tried to load all the software onto my Dell laptop. First I had to update the Windows Software Updater. Then I had to upgrade all sorts of other programs, which made me wary, since I was worried that half the software on my laptop would stop working once I installed all these "upgrades."

Well, the screenshot above is the result of me trying for over an hour to load the Zune Marketplace software onto my machine and format my loaner Zune. Obviously it didn't work, so my loaner Zune sits on my living room coffee table, little more than a paper weight. It won't work until I can sync it with my machine.

It goes without saying iTunes works just fine on my machine. In fact, I'm listening to it right now as I type this.

Once I get some free time I'll give it another shot, but I'm not holding my breath.
