    Microsoft Zune 2 is coming out! With a touchpad! It's so going to crush all of Apple's new line of iPods..... right.... Just to add insult to injury, if Apple were to do something on Zune's release date to weaken their sales and further boost already topping-the-chart-70%-market-share-best-media-player-all-around devices, what would it be?

    Nothing, apple does not need to release anything, the zune is no threat in my opinion. Yeah, their market share might raise a couple percent, but that is not enough for apple to start worrying. Microsoft would have to come up with something revolutionary to give apple competition, it seems like the zune is just a side project right now.

    the new zune does not look pleasant, all that brushing and the dark annoying interface would give me a headache, microsoft failed miserably :-/

    Apple doesn't have to "respond" zune poses no competition.

    There is a "touch pad"? It's not built into the screen? Zune 2 is not worth it... I highly doubt it would be even as good as the iPod Classic. I doubt the Zune will be internet ready anytime soon. (or if it is then its still not as good as the ipod lineup)

    Basically, it is one large touch button, that responds in certain ways if you press that one big round, flat button on the sides, top and bottom, etc. It really doesn't look that great. It is also not flat, but it is literally, a button, so it is bumped out of the unit. Yes, it does make the unit look kinda ugly. At least its thinner.

    Apple will laugh, especially at it's "wireless sync" ability.

    Did you read that for it to "wireless sycn" it needs to be plugged into it's base station? The base station that can is usually powered by USB? What's the point?!
