    Want an iPhone but my parents wont let me get a phone yet. So, what do you guys think? Should I get the new iPod Touch or the Microsoft Zune? I am quite really into the iPod Touch right now but the Microsoft Zune seems really awesome! I just dont know which one to decide so please help me out! Thanks!

    ipod...i had the same debate, but over the Ipod video and the Zune. There really isnt anything better about the zune except that it has the radio and the song sharing...but since nobody has a zune, the song sharing is pointless

    I know from experience. get the iPod Touch. I got it recently for my birthday on the 17th. I highly recommend it. The only problem I've been coming across is youtube because the buffering doesn't always work properly. Although thats just my Wi-Fi connection so you should be fine.

    iPod Touch>Zune

    [​IMG]
    Its as big as a Credit Card or maybe a tiny bit bigger but yeah still good

    but as far as this topic I would go for the Ipod Touch.....Its 10x better than the Zune

    Why does the Zune suck? Just because it doesn't have a browser and touch screen abilities automatically renders it as being trash...

    I personally have had no problems with my Zune. It's only $200. You get a 30gb hdd, with a great dashboard, scratch resistant surface, big ass screen. They're worth it for the price. For living in a more rural area I have to complain though..The wifi is useless where I live since the only other person I know with a Zune is my gf.

    Personally I think it's an inexpensive worthwhile purchase. If you're looking for a tough, reliable mp4 player other than an Ipod, I would send you to the Zune or Zen.

    Ipod= Cool
    Zune/Zen= Uncool

    Just get a cheap ass MP3 and buy white earphones - then you have Ipod coolness on a cheap-ass budget ;)

    Depending on your music and potential video/movie collection you want to lug around, you might look at a HD based IPOD. I know it's nice not having to decide what to take on our 80GB (we just take everything), and it sort of doubles up as a backup too.

    I'm pretty much ambivalent towards Apple products, but our 5G IPOD works really well and as the "reference" standard for MP3 players has a HUGE number of 3rd party peripherals available.

    OR...
    Just buy some white earphones to look cool... Keep the other end securely in your pocket though, lest it falls out and reveals to people that you are simply an i-faker...
    If anyone tries to speak to you you can say "hey wait a min whilst I turn off my IPOD ;)..." Then you shuffle your hands around in your pocket for a few seconds (to make it look convincing)...
    You can learn all of your fave tunes by heart - and hum them as you wander about.

    As a zune owner and a 360 owner i'm sorry to say that there is not anything special that you can do. The only thing that is different is that there is a little zune logo next to your device's name when you look at what players to get music from.

    Lol! Thats hella funny! SOunds like I might get an iPod Touch! But the Zune is pretty tight though from checking out all my buddies Zunes. Zen is all right, no problems with it. Thanks everyone!
