Avoid the loony Zune

Bill Gates with Zune
Andrew Ihnatko has just reviewed Microsoft's new Zune MP3 player for the Chicago Sun-Times. The results are not pretty (via Open Rights Group):

"These devices are just repositories for stolen music, and they all know it," said Doug Morris, CEO of Universal Music Group. "So it's time to get paid for it."

Well, Morris is just a big, clueless idiot, of course. Do you honestly want morons like him to have power over your music player?

Then go ahead and buy a Zune. You'll find that the Zune Planet orbits the music industry's Bizarro World, where users aren't allowed to do anything that isn't in the industry's direct interests.

hi! Its more than a year after this post, and the news have proven to be bloody red: A birds eye view of the mighty ipod, the hyped yet headturner iphone, and zune down there. BUT good news from ConsumerSearch:
Zune's headphones tops ipod's!
