    Okay, first off, let me say that I still love having an iPod Touch. Even with a small capacity (8GB), it's still amazing.

    But a friend of mine brought his Zune 80GB to school today. This is not the original Zune, it's a second generation. Wow. Seriously, if you don't understand what I mean, google Zune and see on the site (which in my opinion is more creative). http://www.zune.net/en-us/products/zune80gb/default.htm

    I figured I would compare since I'm actually considering trading or something, am I going crazy? EDIT: Changed my mind. I'm never going to lose my iPod Touch.

    ------------------------iPod Touch---------Zune 80GB
    Size?---------------------same--------------same (slightly longer)
    Screen Size?----------------3.5 inch-----------3.2 inch
    Screen Durability?-----------scratch resistant-----scratch resistant
    --------------------------(finger smudges)-----(nothing)
    Touch?--------------------touch screen--------touch pad
    Capacity?------------------8-16GB------------80GB
    Price?---------------------$299-$349---------$249
    Battery?-------------------22h music----------30h music
    -------------------------5h video------------4h video
    Earphones?----------------same-old-----------nicer, plus shoe-lace design
    Sharing Media?--------------maybe?------------yes, of course
    FM RADIO?!-----------------of course not-------of course YES!
    GAMES?!-------------------obviously-----------ehh...no.
    MOBILE BROWSER?!-----------yes, amazing too-----fortunately for us, no

    OS Needed-----------------basically anything----Vista or XP

    The only reason I'm still confident in the iPod is the fact that it can be jailbroken. If this jailbreak process wouldn't exist (or would cease to exist, hopefully not by 1.1.3), I wouldn't mind spending extra money just to cross the border (Canada to US) and buy a Zune.

    I just realized there was fine print at the bottom of the page...

    Apparently the Zune only works if you have a Windows computer..Not an issue for most, but too bad.

    Just wait until the Zune 3... With a touchscreen the thing will be so gorgeous I will have spontaneous sexual eruptions. And with custom applications. I CAN'T WAIT!!!!

    The Zune does not have web browsing capabilities, so it wouldn't even be an option for me. It depends on what you need/want.

    I agree with a113524c here...I love my Mobile Safari browser and the many other applications with the iPod Touch, I wouldn't dream of trading for a Zune.

    Very true. I knew I was missing something so I went back and added it to the list. And yes, this is an absolute needed feature that the Zune does not have.

    And to nclaxmiddy, I knew it needed Vista, but reading about it, I realized its many flaws..I felt pity for it.

    Pre jailbreak, it was a difficult decision for me. The moment the iPod was jailbroken though, my decision was made

    No browsing? No games? No touch screen?
    No thank you.
