    Thank you, I have recently been searching for information approximately this subject for a while and yours is the best I’ve discovered till now. However, what concerning the bottom line? Are you certain about the source?|What i don’t realize is in reality how you are not actually much more neatly-favored than you might be right now. You are so intelligent.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
