Apple can sleep soundly in Chicago

Chicago SunTimes' Andy Ihnatko takes his gloves off in reviewing Zune:

Yes, Microsoft's new Zune digital music player is just plain dreadful. I've spent a week setting this thing up and using it, and the overall experience is about as pleasant as having an airbag deploy in your face. "Avoid," is my general message. The Zune is a square wheel, a product that's so absurd and so obviously immune to success that it evokes something akin to a sense of pity.

You'll find that the Zune Planet orbits the music industry's Bizarro World, where users aren't allowed to do anything that isn't in the industry\'s direct interests.


Result: The Zune will be dead and gone within six months. Good riddance.
