Jasmine and Donald are terribly tired of the Zune HD and iPod Touch, but there's nothing else to talk about (besides the wonders of fried food), so consider yourself warned. On the plus side, a cranky Jasmine is an entertaining one as she expounds upon the objectivity of spec-to-spec comparisons. Also up: Donald calls out some worthy Zune HD accessories, and several loyal listeners get to hear their musings read on the air.

Zune HD versus iPod Touch

I have a question... WHY IS THERE NO CAMERA ON THE IPOD TOUCH? that was the reason i waited for 3 months after my birthday to wait for the 3g instead of the 2g.

I am so angry!

And the most annoying thing is that they put it on the nano!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


why would they put it oin the nano witch doesn't have wi-fi or support for apps that can actually do stuff with the video? I want you guys to go up to Steve Jobs and ask him.


What happened to the claim that the Zune HD was going to do 28 days of straight battery life? Was this a joke?


I'm debating between the ipod toutch 64 gig, a zune hd 32 gig or a zune 120. I would like to purchas a touch screen device because to me they are much easier to use and i like the features but i have alot of music so i need capacity. I want a zune hd because the device looks amazing, its cheaper than a touch and its not as bulky as a touch but it doesnt have the capacity i need. I was wondering if Zune was planing on releasing a 64 gig any time soon. Also i would like to know your opinion on if a touch would be worth the price or if i should just settle for a zune 120. My last question is if the zune hd's internet supports flash video or java.


[Looking for headphones at Goodwill].. all of sudden I looked down on a shelf and all by themselves were an old pair of 1980's or early1990's Walkman type headphones. The type with the small chrome band that you pull on to adjust. The headphones looked so pathetic just sitting there no players no other headphones nothing but picture frames and old random items. The cord of the headphones were tied up by a rubber band I just couldn't imagine these things working much less blowing my mind...

...I went home plugged in my new headphones and listened to hours and hours of music. Old school meets new school, no one's going to believe me when I say how good these headphones sound and how I found them. If you come by a set of Aiwa HP-M16 headphones don't just walk by: stop, listen and enjoy. I listened for hours, these headphones fit perfectly sounded great and were in flawless condition. Next time you see an old set of headphones don't just dismiss them they may just blow you away!
