  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  • Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  • Excellent way of explaining, and good piece of writing to get data regarding my presentation topic, which i am going to convey in institution of higher education.

  • Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future
    but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to
    ask!

  • With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
    or copyright violation? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but
    it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web
    without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being
    stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

  • I precisely needed to appreciate you once again. I do not know what I might have handled in the absence of the entire methods documented by you concerning my area of interest. It seemed to be the difficult case in my circumstances, nevertheless considering the skilled manner you handled it forced me to leap over joy. I will be happier for the information and as well , have high hopes you are aware of an amazing job you are always undertaking teaching the mediocre ones thru your webpage. Most probably you’ve never encountered all of us.
