“Melinda Gates Bans Apple Products From The Gates Household” But is That Really So Bad? No iPads, No iPods, Just Zunes

Don’t ever try to smuggle an Apple product into the house of Melinda Gates, cause she’s just not having it.

Now, Melinda, what if one of your children says, “Mom, I have to have an iPod?The reply:

“I have gotten that argument — ‘You may have a Zune.’”

What she means is a Zune HD, which is Microsoft’s version of an iPod Touch. Let’s learn about it, after a quick photo shoot that happened when Seattle turned aqua blue, for some reason.

MG in the lab, for some reason:

And we’re back.

Now, I myself have a Zune HD – they were going for $140-something just a few days ago but just this moment they’re a big higher at the Amazon. The primary reason I got it was to avoid any iTunes conflicts with my iPod Classic, one that’s been happily chugging along since ought-four. Anyway, compared with an iPod Touch, the Zune HD is cheaper, smaller, faster, smarter what with its OLED screen and NVIDIA chip and whatnot. And it’ll easily fit into the secret pocket of the right front pocket of your blue jeans, so that’s a bonus. I’m at a loss as to why it doesn’t have rocker buttons on the side for volume, but oh well.

Your takeaway is that Apple lowered prices of the iPod Touch line solely due to the arrival of the Zune HD, so you benefit from this piece of machinery regardless.

Anyway, if you’re reading this, Melinda, and you’re still in a you may have a Zune mood, I’ll gladly take a 64GB with the AV Dock, just have your people email me.

And, I’ll thank you sincerely – I won’t feel like I’m being deprived or nothing.

Zune HD rULeZ!

    That is getting a bit more subjective, however I a lot prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has extra flair, and some cool options like ‘Mixview’ that allow you to rapidly see associated albums, songs, or other customers related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on a kind of will center on that merchandise, and another set of “neighbors” will become visible, permitting you to navigate around exploring by related artists, songs, or users. Talking of customers, the Zune “Social” is also nice enjoyable, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming associates with them. You then can take heed to a playlist created based mostly on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. These concerned with privacy shall be relieved to know you’ll be able to prevent the general public from seeing your personal listening habits should you so choose.”
