jkOnTheRun: Two Zunes, Two Different Experiences

Posted by Darius Wey in "Zune Talk" @ 03:00 PM

"If you listened to the latest MobileTechRoundup episode you know that I won the right to buy a Zune from Amazon for $90. I picked up a white one and decided to give it to my wife for Christmas to replace her aging iPod. Great minds think alike and I was surprised to find my own Zune under the tree on Christmas morning making us a two Zune family. I couldn’t wait to get my black Zune installed and loaded with some tunes so I set out to install the Zune software that came with the player. It would be a long day from that point forward."

I guess by now, we all know that each member of the Zune community has sat through a very different out-of-the-box experience. Mine was largely seamless. Jason's had kinks. Engadget cried foul words at the installer. Meanwhile, James Kendrick had a different story to tell. Two new Zune devices entered his family this Christmas, and each offered something unique to the table. Check out what he had to say, and then tell us what your out-of-the-box experience was like. Bliss or amiss?

Zune Unboxed

If you can't wait until November 14 and simply want to take the Zune out of its box now - even if you aren't there to play with it - then head over to CBS News, where you'll learn some colourful (excuse the pun) and questionable "facts" such as "brown is the new black is the new white". Most of Chris Stephenson's walkthrough focuses on the Zune's customisable UI, with attention on music and video playback, and setting pictures as wallpaper.
