Zune Top 10 Ugliest Tech Products of the Year

Oh come on... it isn't nearly that bad, is it? It may not yet have the sexy factor of its competitors, but placing it in the same category, let alone the same sentence as the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X, Furby, or Virtual Boy is just uncalled for. The PC World article mentions the "hide-a-pod" website as proof of a massive outcry against the Zune's "ugly" design. Really, I see nothing wrong with the Zune design (of course, I do have a slight bias; owning a brown one, and writing for a website specializing in Zune news doesn't help any claim of neutrality) other than it being a bit beefy at times. The new designs seem to have mostly fixed this, but again, it's truly in the eye of the beholder.

I compare the Zune's polarizing design, and especially the color choices of brown and green (for Zune2) to Toyota's Scion xB. While I personally am not a fan of the car's boxy design and what I see as a clunky look, I know several happy xB owners who wouldn't have it any other way. I love my Zune, and if I could, I'd nominate PC World for an "ugliest site ever" award.

Zune: Pleasure or Displeasure to the Senses?

Posted by Darius Wey in "Zune Talk" @ 10:38 PM



You've probably already checked out the Zune in all its FCC glory. Now it's time for you to voice your thoughts. Perhaps you're worried about the size. You may like or dislike the button arrangement. Not a fan of the colours? Whatever the case, let us know what you think about the aesthetics of the Zune.
