Recently, a couple of Target employees stole a bunch of digital music players from the store where they worked. By a ratio of five to one, they preferred iPods over "similar Microsoft devices."
Is that being a bit harsh on the Zune? After all, we thought it was a decent challenger to the iPod when it first debuted. To get our answer, we turned to the public (well, as public as our office kitchen gets). First we laid out a new iPod nano and a Microsoft Zune — each with virtually the same shape, capacity and color — on the counter. Then we set up a hidden camera, got out of the way, and watched for which player each person grabbed for first.
The final tally? The video tells all. And, yeah, that one guy is on notice.
