a terrible attempt to recreate the greatest mp3 player (the apple ipod). it is physically much bigger and it comes in terrible colors, brown is one of them. it is touted for its ability to send songs wirelessly over WiFi, but when the person receives them they can only keep them for 3 days or 3 plays, whichever comes first. its so far been a bomb, and Bill Gates should bend over and suck Steve Job's dick. the zune also supports like 4 times less file formats than the zune
Person 1: man i just bought this zune
Person 2: oh thats gay, my ipod supports many more file formats and it looks about 50 times better
Person 1: well i mean i guess i bought it because i feel sorry for bill gates. i mean the guys company has taken a back seat in terms of innovation and overall creativity, i might as well be nice to the guy

A piece of shit device released by Microsoft. The "awesome capability" to beam music to your friends is another example of Microsoft copying Apple. This technology was introduced IN 1993 ON THE APPLE NEWTON!!! Piece of shit device that nobody uses. If you think, have you ever seen someone with a Zune and not an iPod?
Person 1: "DUDE! I got the new iPod Touch!"

Dickhole: "Well I got a Zune. I trust Microsoft more than Apple. It may be a brick but I can let my friend listen to a song twice! Microsoft is so smart with its wireless beaming technology!

Person 1: "Cunt."

This product is a portable music player made by Microsoft. It was meant to compete with Apple's iPod. Among other things that the iPod does well, it is aestecially pleasing unlike the Zune.
The standard iPod comes in white or black, while the nanos (formally called minis) come in rainbow colors. The shuffle was formally white, and now silver. Notice that nowhere does apple use the color brown.

Microsoft decided to use brown on their "Zune" (where the fuck did they get the name "zune" anyway?) to make it look like a piece of dog shit to represent it's function.
Person one: "Aww shit, I think I just stepped in dog shit!!"
Person two: "No, that was my new Zune."
Person one: "Okay, now you can get an iPod."

The Toshiba Gigabeat S, with a wheel over the buttons and 2 buttons on the side. Microsoft's hope to enter the digital music player market, using the same business model that Apple used- software intergration.

Will probably come up second best to the iPod, not because it's a revolutionary player, but because it has a new, big brand name.

Some suspect plans from Microsoft to steal market share, such as paying to transfer iTunes songs to the Zune format, preloaded content (confirmed), and amazing deals. Apparently, they will be losing money with each Zune sold, and expect to make it up in the long run.
Guy 1: (Listening to GigaBeat S)
retard: HAHA!! That thing sucks!! Check out this Zune! It pwns that peice!
Guy 1: WTF? (punches retard)

A new, crappy mp3 player that some people think is a match for an iPod but is clearly inferior. To use an iPod all you have to do is plug it into your computer and it does the rest for you via iTunes, which is now installed on all new computer models; for zune, you have to install a completely seperate program (which is erroneous, considering that it is made by microsoft, so wtf cant you use windows media player for it?!) It comes in shitty colors (Who ever heard of a brown or watermelon colored mp3 player?). It only comes in one model, while Apple's iPod has several (iPod shuffle, iPod nano, Video iPod, Touch screen, etc). Worst of all it is made by crazy Bill Gates who has nothing better to do than think of MORE ways to make billions of dollars, such as produce crappy mp3 players and video game systems that break down as soon as you buy them and are too expensive to repair
Tony: Hey look at my new Zune!
Chris: Ohhhh, you should have got an iPod
TOny: everybody has an ipod, i dont want to jump on the bandwagon
Chris: Well, you'll be mad when you're zune doesnt work on your computer and you have to get an ipod anyway. Ipods are dependable
Tony: You'll see, my shit brown colored Zune is the best mp3 player and will wipe out the ipod for sure

24 hours later

Chris: how's your zune?
Tony: I got an ipod
Chris: really? what happened?
Tony: my zune never worked... you were right...

A product created by Microsoft in a (vain) attempt to compete with the iPod.
Too bad the world is full of consumer whores who want the apple logo stamped on their face.
The main 'selling point' (and I use the term loosely here) was that you could share songs with your friends.
Seriously though...just go buy a fucking iPod.
Zune owner: SwEeT!11!1 I've stuck it to the man and bought a Zune-now I can bash on how much apple sucks and share songs with my friends!
iPod owner: Yeah? You mean, like, the seven other people in the fucking world who actually own and use a Zune?
Zune owner: .....you just don't understand me! *goes into corner and cries*

A shitty ass failed attempt at Microsoft to cry and beat the apple iPod. Hass Wi-Fi for you can "Squirt" songs to the other 2 Zune users in the world, and the songs you get from others are only 3 days or 3 Plays and it's gone. It has Radio, but thats not why you get damn MP3 players. It has a big screen to compensate for it's shitty colors and over bearing DRM.
Zune User:"Hey dude, wanna Squirt?"
Other guy:"Sorry im not into gay sex"

Zune User:"Ha Ha I have a Zune, I can Squirt songs to other Zune owners"
iPod User:"Good luck finder other 2 Zune users"
