Washington Post Weighs in on the Zune
Sending this via e-mail, so please excuse lack of clickable links (if the link below isn’t converted). Interesting article. I hope people at Microsoft are paying attention to articles like these. The reskinned WMP11/Urge combo isn’t going to be enough to compete against iTunes. I still think it’s stupid they didn’t just delay the release so that they could design a new Zune content store and synchronization software ( with netcast support!). I understand they wanted to make the holiday shopping season, but putting out an unfinished product like this is more hurtful to a company than missing the shopping season, IMO. Hopefully people getting Zunes for Christmas aren’t going to return them the week after.
