Sorry, the Zune software is all you can use. Don't worry it will be back up soon I'm sure. Perhaps 12:00am Pacific.

You could take some pictures of the device for everyone to enjoy while we wait for ours. Just a thought.

Yeah I am in Eastern Time Zone and I figure by 3am it may be up....I was bumming here..hahaha..

Yes I have it...I was the only one at Walmart waiting for it....they had two 16GB and two 32GB.....

I like the color...its black on the back..almost like a grainy finish....black and gray.....somewhat matte....It's running some sort of demo mode since it can't run the software yet...

Hardware I can't comment on yet as I cannot use it....hehe...but the screen is very smooth and moves as well as the Ipod, if not better....I had the touch and this is sleek for sure....

congrats dude I think your the first person to post that actually has one.
Well other then Dave but he works for MS so I don't think that counts.

I am going to grab Scribblenauts for the DS in a couple of hours which will hopefully keep my mind off not having the HD.

dude we are in Canada so its going to be bit before they are available here.
Unless you have a master plan to get one shipped here, if you do more power to you and I agree with you they are very sleek looking.

3 more pics....screen shot is not so good...but its spectacular in person....site is still down I see....bummer...

Oh and this may seem goofy but the USB cable stinks...and has an odor of plastic..its hard to describe...almost like a sterile smell of a doctors office....I can smell it sitting about 6 feet from the cable....

Now I see what everyone at Zunited was complaining about with the supposed two days early Zune guy. That Zune must have been a fake, or he had the smallest hands I've ever seen. Nice pics man.
