    Wow, I wish we could have something similar here in Indianapolis. Guess that’s the downfall of being in a small city. 🙁 Anyone wanna send me some notes?

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
