I have had both an Ipod and a Microsoft Zune and I definitely have enjoyed the Zune more because of it's unique features and abilities. Not only are the mp3 players sleek and colorful, but they are incredibly strong and easy to use. One thing that I thoroughly enjoy about the Zune is that you can change the background to be any picture that you choose. It is also easier than Itunes to put music on your device, etc. You can enjoy videos, pictures, games, podcasts, and radio on these well-built players. Not only that, but you can buy songs wirelessly (Wi-Fi) right on your device! Along with the Wi-Fi affect you can send your songs to your friends who have Zunes at no cost! They can then listen to them for a certain number of times. If I ever have to choose an MP3 player ever again I will definitely buy the infamous but wonderful Zune from Microsoft.
