It's Christmas for me! Whoo!

What did you people get? I got a laptop! So happy! Well, I wasn't happy at first, as my mom opened a gift, and it was an iPod touch. I was like "OK, whatever, I don't like iPods that much anyway". Then my brother opened his gift. It was a Zune HD. I was like "RAGE!" Then I opened my gift. It was a lappy top. I was like "OK, this makes it all better."

So yeah, that was my Christmas. I got a lot of other stuff too, but I'm tired. I'll maybe tell you more stuff tomorrow.

Nice.

OK, here's what else I got:

*BioShock for PC
*$70
*Blu-Ray Player
*Harry Potter 6 DVD
*Rubik's Mirror Cube (http://tinyurl.com/6eedt3)

Although the Blu-Ray player is more of a family gift, I still get to use it.

iPods are much better than Zunes.

I have 2 nanos, a shuffle a touch and 2 iPhones and I haven't got grief from any of them Smile

It's just a personal preference. I've had problems (both compatibility and general crashing issues) from both my 3rd and 4th gen nanos.

What the hell is a "Zune" :\

The iPod I got is 2nd gen I think Wink
With that music quiz there are some bugs..but apart from that it seems pretty good, much better then my mp3 player, the iPod is much faster and doesn't crash when playing certain songs Wink Thats because iTunes normally cuts off the 'bad stuff' kind of...but it didn't for this one song which is what I think causes the strange glitch in the music quiz Razz
Only thing with iPods is changing the computer you use deletes all the music on it...and 88.8mb took a little while to download with dial up Razz

Haha, I installed Hitman Blood Money 2 days ago, and have beaten it on the easiest difficulty Laughing
Sure, I didn't get the highest rank for every mission but I still finished each mission Wink

Who cares if the designs are similar? The point is, iTunes is made to run on Macs, and it runs slowly on PCs. On top of that, iPods in general have a lot of compatibility issues with windows files that can't be fixed with iTunes alone. You need separate conversion tools, and those are a pain to find, and a waste to download. Also, all Zunes have radio, whereas, excluding the 5th gen nano, you need to pay $30 for a radio extension on iPods. All Zunes also have wifi connectivity to buy and download music straight to the player. Zunes can also sync wirelessly.

And to top it all off, there's no 16GB iPod touch, but there is for Zune. An 8GB iPod touch is too little for me, and a 32GB is too expensive.

Based on those images, I think that the the ipods look graphically better on screen but I think the Zune's 'outside' looks better...

But thats just looks, I would need to try a Zune to see the features, performance etc., hint hint Wink

Haha, at one of the electronic stores here in NZ, on the website I searched Zune and it came up with all this ipod stuff xD

Yeah, Zune is definitely a lesser-known brand, but they're pretty cool, and they work well. Although, there isn't an SDK for the Zune yet, so there's very few apps... but still. It's definitely worth a try.

Hmm, on TradeMe ( a NZ aution site) There are very few Zunes so they might not be out here yet..and they are fairly expensive the ones on there, 300-400NZD

Hmmm, I looked on another electronic shops website and they don't have any either so they mustn't be out here yet, so the Zunes on TradeMe are probably from America maybe...

I don't know how to convert NZD to USD, but that looks pretty expensive. The Zune's prices are comparable to the iPod's.

"1 New Zealand dollar = 0.7222 U.S. dollars"

8GB ipod nanos are 259NZD and a classic 160GB ipod is 428NZD, ipod touch 8GB is 349NZD and 32GB is 498NZD

For the Zunes on TradeMe there are 2 30GB ones for 300NZD so thats probably about right maybe? If it did come from another country, it could be slightly more expensive because of that (but it says it comes with an AC wall charger, so presumable it is the NZ wall socket plug so maybe it did come from NZ unless maybe Australia uses the same kind of adapaters/sockets as us, I know the US doesn't)

Wow... the iPods are nice and expensive. You should visit the US and buy one here instead.

Haha, the travel cost would be alot higher then buying one here Razz
And getting one from the US, if it had a wall adapter, I would have you buy an adapter so it could be plugged in over here, and if anything goes wrong with it, its a long distance for it to be fixed or w/e under its warrenty Razz

However, if a free one was sent to me, that would be a completly different story Razz

Well, you could always just move to the US. Then in time, you'd save a lot of money. Razz
