I now have a brown Zune, and an unlimited subscription to Zune Marketplace. What can I say – the price was right!

Technically this is my second Zune; the first one only worked until it stopped.

My initial opinions: some of the navigation is much better than the iPod, but the device is much more clunky. The tech lead on my project, when he noticed it, picked it up and said “why would they release something this big?”

That was one of the nicer comments made about it, actually, so I’ll stop there.

Videos look quite nice on it, but it doesn’t support any rational format, so I have none but the pre-supplied crappy ones.

Anyway – thank you J. Allard, pirate and legionnaire, for this device.
