Zuning to the Newies!

July 17, 2008 at 9:14 am 5 comments

Yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I got my Zune! (Thank you, Matchstick!)

Here it is in it’s all its packaged glory:


I’m really psyched about trying the Zune out for a myriad of reasons, one of which is that I want to listen to more podcasts and watch more tech shows. Also, I take public transit (no, really…) and this will be a nice alternative to reading (especially since I’m presenting without a cool book).

I spent the better part of last night adding podcasts to my collection – including TED Talks, Twit, Epic Fu & Savage Love. I have now amassed over 500… – but know there is more cool stuff out there. So please let me know what you like (Tech, Comedy, Educational, Marketing etc.) – I’d love some recommendations.

The Zune also has an interesting social aspect – you can get other people’s downloads and people can beam things to your Zune. They even ask you to name your device for that reason. (My device’s name is “MrShiny”, btw 🙂

The inside of the Zune’s box reads: “Wel-come to the Social.”

I’ll talk more about the Zune and my thoughts as I use it. P.S. I am participating in Chatthreads research for this promotion, so if you want to talk about this post feel free to go to Chatthreads.com and type in Conversation ID 102 986 0287

    We should have a Zune meetup if/when the rest of us get ours…I’m sure the world will end when there are more than 2 Zunes in one physical space but hey, you only live once.

    I’m game 🙂 Let’s do it.

    You’ll quickly find that 500 podcasts is totally unmanageable to keep up with 😛

    Podcast recommendations: CBC Radio 3, C-Realm, Chaishop Music News.

    Thanks, Greg – will check out those recommendations, immi!

    Oh, I meant 500 shows, probably about 15 subscriptions.
