Yeah te top of the range model comes with 1gig memory, so I can't help but wonder who actually came up with the name first - although all of its reviews, in the awards on that page seem far too up to date...
I've always liked the Ars reviews. Rather than trying to impose one opinion on readers, they usually provide enough depth so that readers can form their own judgment in the end.
As they said, I think the Zune has potential - it is just that it's a little "neutered" right now for various reasons, some being typical v1.0 problems (like software installation and sync issues), and others being almost out of Microsoft's hands - the DRM limitations on sharing, for example, were obviously put in place due to pressure from the recording industry. It's not like other manufacturers can get around copyright violations without some form of legal trouble.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
