Also Zune is also the top hard-drive MP3 player on Cnet and it is one of the most popular MP3 players that Cnet users search for.

These are signs that Zune is heading in the right direction and the future looks very bright.

To me its a sign that the American people are fickle... Hating something one minute (the zune) and embracing it the next... not that this is a bad thing mind you.

You nailied it on the head bro Smiley Its funny the Zune 80 is even doing good. Because all MS did was show a sample of the zune. They have not released all the spec s yet, the new MP, and no hands on reveiws from cnet, etc.  This is going to be very interesting when the Zunes get a FULL DETAIL HANDS ON REVIEW, its going to be hard not to like honestly. GO MS SEE THE HELL OUT OF WI-FI and syncing. DAMN I'm going to have agood day today:)

But Americans seem to like Pizza Hut, so they can't be that fickle  Grin

Blogged it.  Thanks, Bond.

Today the Zune 80 GB player appears on CNET's list of 20 Most Wanted products.

The Zune 80 seems to be filling the market niche that we predicted: a player with a large screen (3.2") and high capacity (80 GB or 250 hours of video).

Presently there's nothing in the iPod lineup that offers both of those features - and the market seems to be recognizing that.

I disagree with the fickle concept.  I think it is more of the features that are being added to the Zune.  The Zune 1G was not the greatest in adding any interesting features, the zune to zune transfer failed after that you are left with a DAP that is boring.

However, with the wireless sync and the upgraded social you are now entering areas none or not many are in.  You have raised the bar, also the fact the old hardware is getting updated to the new firmware shows a lot of commitment from MS not to do the annual gutting.

I am not sure if I will buy a Zune 2, but I will definaltely upgrade my firmware and enjoy the new features.

I am surprised that the Cnet site and its users are finally embracing the Zune because Cnet was one of Zunes toughest critics.  In fact none of the Cnet editors liked the Zune or gave it a chance accept for James Kim who unfortunately past away last Christmas season when he actually wanted a Zune.

I rely heavily on cnet for my tech info.  Word of the flashes and 80 got me interested in Zune, and I bought one from Woot when I read about the $99 refurb deal.  I was pleasantly surprise this morning when I left my laptop running w/ zune soft on and my Zune connected.  Looking thru my Zune this morning, nearly all of my unknown album covers had been filled in, and the movie I was downloading synced!  So, thank you cnet.
