    It's probably a good idea to take this survey with a large grain of salt, but I'd be interested to see what numbers they would get with follow-up surveys.

    Perhaps the Zune will end up like the Xbox - it will really go "mainstream" with the second generation.

    Dont think the Xbox is all that mainstream really I mean sure the 360 got some sales but it has had a year head start. after this month the fun will start as far as numbers go , I dont think 58% of Ipod owers will want a Zune ..but if they can offer a nice product the people wanting a new piece of hardware will be looking at whats out there, who knows in 2 years where they will be.


    Whatever the numbers, one thing is clear: the Xbox 360 is selling worse than the original Xbox did back when it hit Japan in February of 2002. I know this thread is not about Xbox's :0)

    I think its good we have other options the Zune will be one of those options

    It is indeed a silly statistic.
    I want a Zune tho, purely as very few people in the UK will

    - Have one
    - Know what they are

    I don't know about the statistics, but one of the things that I like about my iPod is iTunes. I like the fact that I have a one-stop-shop to purchase music, burn music CDs, rip CDs, listen to music, and listen to my music. I don't have to use5 different programs in order to do what I want to do. My understanding is that that this is not really possible with the Zune

    MS is building a competitor to the iTunes music store, but I'm not sure if it has the same amount of music.

    I'm an iPod owner, and I shall purchase a Zune... to test its buoyancy.

    I wonder if you will hear about the scratches on these ?? That really upset me with my iPod. I had it for a week and the amount of scratches that were on it made it look like it was a year old ..

    Yeah I agree Apple needs to drastically improve the quality of the coating. Although then all the millions made on iPod cases would be lost...:rolleyes:

    For this reason, I think Apple did this on purpose.
