Well, just a couple tidbits…

No Zune 2 For You!
Today is a sad day. With the rumors of multiple retail chains putting the Zune 2 out on the shelves early and me being the geek that I am, I went on a mission to get myself one. I failed. I had on employee at one of the 4 places I stopped confirm that they know that they shouldn’t be out yet. The other 3 people I talked to had zero clue. Target’s Display was quite bare in anticipation. Oh well.

David Pogue Whines About Windows Mobile Again…
In his typical fashion, David Pogue hammers the T-Mobile Shadow based on his dislike for the Windows Mobile OS. I could sit here for 30 minutes debating 33-50% of his “complaints”, but rather than that (since I don’t have the time at this moment), I will let you read his “article”. Reaching for Apple, Falling Short. Does the title of this “article” give you any clues?

He has my quote of the month in this one though…

Frankly, Windows Mobile 6 is a mess. Common features require an infinitude of taps and clicks, and the ones you need most are buried in menus. Apparently the Windows Mobile 6 team learned absolutely nothing from Windows Mobile 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Yes, I am a Windows Mobile Device MVP and I am quite biased towards Windows Mobile, but when I look at phones with other operating systems, I accept that I am unfamiliar with that OS and don’t hold my inability to navigate through the OS against the device. Speaking of other operating systems, I am trying out the Nokia N95 as my phone. The camera is awesome, that’s all I have right now.

    this has absolutely nothing to do with zune 2…

    but i am new to your sites as well as you. i was looking up info on the tmobile wing and came across your youtube video and started watching more of your videos and i believe in your review of the new samsung sch-i760 where you were going through “contacts” and i noticed the zip you used was 205… so all i wanted to know is if you’re also from alabama? haha. hit me back in an email if you want i have a lot of questions if you’re willing to help me.

    this however does have to do with zune2…

    i can’t wait!

    With that horrible and slanted review, Mr. Pogue is just perpetuating the alleged Apple bias that everyone believes he has. Change that from alleged to definitive.

    This is no rumor. I can confirm that in Tempe, Arizona multiple stores have the flash zunes available on shelves.

    Im personally trying to hunt down an 80gb. I have not seen anyone try to purchase the flash one yet.
