Can the Scrappy Little Zune HD Take on the iPod Touch and the Borg that is Apple?

Here it is, the Apple Borg Store at Market and Stockton in Union Square. It’s packed these days with people checking out the new iPod Touch.

See? The greeters at the door sometimes say, “We are Borg. You will be assimilated.” They know they’re not supposed to say that, but sometimes they’ll forget and say it anyway.

But what’s this? Straight out of Seattle (by way of China) comes the new Zune HD!

Its message? “Hello from Seattle.” That’s what it says right on the left edge of this tiny little thing. See?

First read up on “From OLED to Tegra: Five Myths of the Zune HD“ from the Apple fan-boys (you know, to get up to speed ‘n stuff) and then tune in to this blog later on to get the first impressions (like digital radio – how does that work in hilly San Francisco) of the new mp3 player from the kids at Microsoft.

It’ll be fun.

    “Hello from Seattle” is a bit sad in how it simultaneously evokes “Designed by Apple in California” and the original “Hello” campaign for the Mac.
