I wish that had been printed on the box.
Hahahaha!

I'd forgotten about that too. Love your summary, Angus_NB.

So sad, that MS would have such a narrow & closed-minded view of their customers.

I'm just sorry that they sat themselves so squarely in the middle of the road. They didn't add enough bells and whistles to attract the glitz-loving customers that flock to the iPod Touch, and omitted basic necessities like a custom EQ that are pretty much essential to being a major player in a "media-centric" market. I hate to admit it, but the HD is more or less a bastard child between a Cowon S9 or J3 and an iPod Touch 3G

They could regain a little credibility with an equalizer app.....like the one I have on my Touch that gives me a fabulous seven-band parametric EQ.

That would be excellent - if the apps weren't "sandboxed" to prevent the OS from being screwed with (I guess - don't quote me on that 1).

PS: Go check the classifieds, good deal on a Zune HD there,...

Yea, apps can't control the sound output, so no EQ apps. The only way we could get one is through a firmware update.

It's the ONLY feature I want, and that's it.

You picked a bad feature to want lol

More games? Can do. More utilities? Can do. Better music functionality? Sorry, you're SOL.

Heh. Well, you got your digiZoid. I thought you liked how that sounded w/ your ZuneHD.

I suppose I don't understand why you're pissed. They don't advertise a custom EQ. You know what the HD does and doesn't do. And I, for one, am satisfied. And now I'm experiencing brain flatulence, and can't remember what I was going to say after that. I get the feeling that it was very good... lol

Old age is killing you, huh? And I got a Digiziod because I wanted to be sure that, no matter what I use for my tunes, I'll get the most appealing sq I can out of that device.

And please, don't run the "you got what you were promised" line,...I hate when people fall back on that one. It makes no difference - MS had a winner IMO. Now, I really can't say anymore. I guess "it is what is is" really holds alot of weight here,... Too bad a FW update didn't make us all eat our words and just say "ah DAMN!!!" - it feels good to be wrong when the outcome would be so right.

Now, let me be - I still need a case for the OTHER Z:HD in the house, the "unknown" 1 I have hidden,...

I'm gonna remember that, when you want a really good deal on a player I'm selling, and you ALWAYS get hooked up,...

You should know me well enough to realize that was just a joke. If I really was curious at all about the Zune, I'd certainly consider it, as your offers are indeed always good.

But given that I already have this many players, and there's been some weird stuff going on at work this last week or so, my plans for purchasing any kind of toy are on hold for now.

Well, sorry for that, but I feel it holds true. You're right though, it could have been much more. I really couldn't say <the part that I bolded> any better.

lol why do you have so many ZuneHDs? This is the third one you're trying to get rid of, right?
