When it is time for some holiday shopping, most of us around here would much rather get some electronics rather than a necktie. An audio player of some sort is a "must have" item for any gadget fan, and an up to date one with a really large capacity is my personal preference. While it is hard to believe that I'm coming up on my year anniversary of owning a Zune 80 gig, I'm still intrigued to see what players are being recommended this year for music lovin' holiday shoppers.
I spotted this piece today in The Washington Times. Topping their list, was, you guessed it, the Zune. They mention that there are both flash and hard drive models available, and that the Zune is "nice and affordable," which makes it kind of the girl next door that you don't think of while fawning after some cheerleader. At least the paragraph does mention the Zune's strong points: WiFi music sharing (which they got wrong and characterized as streaming), and the all-you-can-eat music pass, which they are out of date and didn't mention the latest iteration to keep a generous 10 tracks a month.
While their details are a little less than accurate, I do agree that the Zune should top any holiday shopper's list.
