By the way... did you know of the zune limitation?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Red nosed reindeer, Dec 31, 2006.

  1. Zune has a beam feature that sounds cool...

    you can send files for example music wirelessly from one zune to another...

    what they DONT say... I found this out by chance...
    is that they have DRM in that feature, that allows you to
    play a file that has been beamed only 3 times....

    Zune is a vista era product... and what is vista? Vista is stupid!

  2. I must emphasis that they don't talk about this feature..

    it should be written clearly on the package, and the consumers should be
    aware before they buy...

    are they hiding this so they can sell lots of zunes this Christmas?

    Then after 3 times you play the file.. you are in for a surprise!

    3X or 3 days but that's the tip of the ice berg of Zune limit. They slapped
    it together to get it out for Christmas and it was a long way from finished.

    Don't like it? Don't buy it.

    I don't think that's going to be a problem.
    Only one person I know has it, and doesn't
    like it.

    I bought an iRiver about a year ago. Does
    what I want- it plays MP3s.

    Ditto, my Sony MP3 player does just that and with no BS software in which
    you are restricted to. Although that's been hacked on the Zune as well.
    Either way both ipod and zune are a total waste of money for what they
    actually do. But then again, people spend $200+ on jeans so go figure.

    I agree about the iPod and the Zune, and the jeans. :)

    You ignore the fact that to buy a Zune at all you have to pay for the
    wireless and yet the wireless is useless. Even worse, go to a Zune display
    in a store or a Zune ad in a magazine. Both tout the wireless capability
    but neither mention the limitations. It is fraud and people end up paying
    for features that they cannot use as advertised. Rather than putting in
    hamstrung wireless, they should have just left it out. That would have
    prevented the lies necessary to sell it.

    Your assumptions as a consumer are not MS's problem. The unit works as
    advertised and does exactly what it's supposed to do. You can share music,
    bottom line.

    Buyer beware, buyers remorse, take your pick. Research before you buy.

    Just because the wireless feature is useless to you does not mean it's
    useless to everyone else.

    You claim consumers can not use the Zune as advertised. Show us where it
    states all shared music is permanent. Your claim is unjustified and false.

    While I do not like the Zune, the one feature I like the most is the
    wireless sharing. You get to let a friend listen to something a few times
    so they get the chance to see if they like it. That's a very powerful and
    impressive feature. For those that like it, for those that don't....stuff
