Zune Accessories at your local Walmart
I know I have been a little Zune crazy lately, so I will tame it down after this post. ZUNE ACCESSORIES ARE AT WALMART.... Last night when we went to Walmart to purchase some Christmas paraphernalia for our house, I walked through the electronics department as I always do now looking for Zune accessories and there it was. The Zune car charger and FM transmitter! This device is average when it comes to FM transmitters and the charger cords is quite short and tightly wound in the coil so it is hard ......

Zune Update - Monster CarPlay for the Zune
Well not from Microsoft, but a Zune branded accessory. An FM transmitter by Monster Cable. I found this at a local Target store (after walking around the campers) along with an actual Microsoft Home Kit (I don't want that $100 dock, remote, and cables). Read more about this device.

No Vista for you Zune Boy!
Well I am still downloading (or attempting to, not looking so good) Vista from MSDN, but I am not sure how I am going to use it. You see (and have probably already heard) that the Vista team is on one side of the campus and Zune team is on another. The distance is so far that they were unable to communicate and test products together. So the Zune doesn't work on Vista. Now since Business Customers don't use Zunes, they will release an update just in time for the Vista Home release in January. So ......

Best Buy Campouts Begin! PS3 and Wii Launch
These pictures are from last night (Wednesday, November 15, 2006) in Lee's Summit, MO around 9pm in the Best Buy parking lot. Amazing!!!! They have already started. Last time I waited in line was XBox 1.0 and prior to that was Dreamcast, N64, Playstation 2. During this time, you just had to show up at 10pm and get it as midnight. Now if you want one of these devices, you have to camp out in the 30 degree weather for a few nights. For all you crazy folks out there waiting in line, pick me up some ......

Zune Accessories - No Where To Be Found
Unless you are just looking for a case to protect your Zune, all other accessories were not shipped. I would hope Microsoft would know that portable devices are nothing without car/home attachments. You need to ship chargers and transmitters with the devices to the stores. This was a lesson Apple needs to learn as well. Every iPod I have purchased (1G, 4G, Nano) have not had adequate accessories at launch. At least Microsoft announced what the accessories were, but with the delivery date set on most ......

Zune Day 2 - Still Loving It - Zune Review
Man I need some accessories. Last night I downloaded so much music that I have been meaning to listen to (well over $249.99 in CDs), but I don't have anything for playback in my car. Here is my review of features: Radio - Robert's friends say it isn't good, but I am in the middle of a large brick building (center office, middle floor) and it comes in perfectly. It is nice to just flip from CDs to FM, too bad I mostly listen to AM and there are no talk radio stations on FM in KC. Buttons - Yeah this ......

Welcome to the social - The Zune has Arrived
Once I popped the top off my Zune box today, this is the phrase I saw, Welcome to the social. I love this device. I have iPods (4 to be exact), so all my music that I have previously purchased can stay on them. My Zune is for the Zune Marketplace and a Zune pass. I wanted this device solely for pulling music from the service (unlimited downloads) and sync only those to the Zune. First thoughts about the device is this is what an iPod should have been. Big screen, more advanced UI, etc. It is hard ......

Busy, Busy, Busy....
With John and my contribution to an upcoming book (more detail later) and client load for Alexander & Julian Inc., we have been very busy lately. Tonight, I am hoping with the hosting update we will be doing will help stabilize the site and get us back into high performance. The new support system we launched on has been pretty successful, but not everyone is using it yet. If you have any problems with the site or content of the site, please email ......
