Zune, Zune, Zune

By Published on .

Now that the Microsoft Zune has officially hit the streets, Mack Simpson is feeling a little gloatish (just made that word up) about previous predictions he made.

Meanwhile, the folks at Engadget have something to say about installing the Zune software on their PC: "It Sucks." Still, they plow ahead in order to offer up a review of the little rectangle itself:

The Zune is a player riddled with a lot of small issues -- death by a thousand cuts. Do we think any particular one is a deal breaker? Well, even given our nightmarish software issues, not really. Do we think they should have worked out the kinks and sat out this holiday season? Probably, yeah. Do we think there's potential for betterment of the platform and especially the player through software updates? Given enough time, absolutely. Would we recommend the product for purchase, like, right now? Not a chance.
