Everyone is always looking for a reason to be critical of Microsoft. Everyone loves everything Apple does. Well, it's time for people to start changing, because Microsoft's Zune is one of the best, if not the best, MP3 players on the market.

Apple has been dominating the MP3/Media player market with the iPod for a long time, but Zune has done everything right. With an easier navigation system that iPod's, more features than an Ipod, and all the features of an iPod, the Zune is a superior MP3 player.

The only drawback for hardcore music buffs is the storage of the Zune. It doesn't come in as many sizes as the Ipod, but with 30GB, it's hard to be unhappy. Plus, the Zune is relatively cheaper than the iPod, which is a good thing for those looking to not spend a lot and still get a great price.

The Zune also has sharing capabilities which allows you to experience new music from friends over wireless network. While the system is limiting (only allowed 3 days with the music, plus the lack of Zune users), it is a step in a very innovative direction. The FM radio doesn't hurt either.

For once, Microsoft has got it right.
