    whatever dude iPod rocks!

    Quoting CNN:
    “But for now, the iPod and iTunes system is superior to anything else on the market. It appears that Microsoft rushed Zune to the stores to meet the holiday shopping season, when a bit more seasoning would have made it a better product.”

    Hehe, if you install iPodLinux on your iPod you’ll have support for many more file formats!

    Also, you left out price. I think that’s a pretty important information.

    But I guess you’re right that Zune supports wifi and FM radio, while the iPod doesn’t. :P
