Gizmodo has posted a photo and some details of the Microsoft Zune mp3 player. Yawn. I think this is a whole lot of nothing. Microsoft is the 10,000lb gorilla but they have never been able to match Apple on ease of use or overall quality of experience. Plus, why would I walk away from the huge investment in songs I have purchased from iTunes that only play on iPods? Will Microsoft really offer to convert all of them to Windows Media format? From one proprietary DRM format to another. I don’t see where the customer wins. Might has well stick with the iPod.
