  1. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  2. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that it’s best to write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
