Within the last couple months I decided I wanted a new MP3 player to replace the main two that I currently use – my cell phone & an iPod shuffle.
What I was looking for is a small flashbased system that has a screen so I can visually see what the volume is, for when I am in my one car I need the volume to be really loud to play through the car speakers and then when I walk into the gym, store, etc I need it pretty quiet to keep from damaging either my headphones or my ears (both has happened with the shuffle).
After a while I settled on a Microsoft Zune. I like the form factor, the controls seem easier then an iPod, and it has wifi, an FM receiver & more.
Within the last couple days a few other great pieces of news came out:
– Zune Price Cut
– Speculation about receiving Netflix
– New policy for Zune Pass
