    OK basically since apples iPod Touch 3G was a it of a let down, inducing me to cry in front of my computer screen, I will most likely be purchasing the Zune HD. Originally i was going to purchase the 3G for its feature of "camera" and "mic" so now that it has none, not even a simple FM radio, i will be leaning towards the Zune HD, here are just a few quick questions:

    1. Is the zune software compatible with a Mac?
    2. does the zune have an iTunes store like application for the Mac?
    3.Does the 32GB only come in Platinum? I was hoping to get it in black
    4. Anything else you guys think is helpful let me know

    Thanks guys

    Not currently.
    See above. But it does have it's zune marketplace for windows.
    They will release more colors through zune originals which you buy online through zune's site.
    Maybe you should try running windows on your mac to make it compatible? Don't know if it'll work, but it's worth looking into.

    15 dollars a month is for the zune pass. download whatever you want and keep ten songs every month.

    Like the above poster said, I think you can copy over anything that isn't DRM-protected.
