The fledgling Zune is like the underdog nobody wants to win. Its parent, the big mean bully Microsoft, has had a regretable past when marketing the device to consumers, but could its next rumored iteration, the Zune HD, actually out do Apple's upcoming iPod touch? Daniel Begun, a HotHardware contributor, thinks Microsoft will have to throw everything they've got at the device, and David Chartier, contributor to MacWorld, thinks they might have a shot with their all-you-can-eat subscription model, if they couple that with a DRM-free music store that's easily accessed. Personally, I think the Zune will have to be Microsoft's first shot at revolutionizing the aging Windows Mobile platform, offering an easy way to develop mobile applications which could then be rolled out to phones in tandem.
Speaking of phones, AT&T is rumored to have locked down the iPhone till 2011, according to the Wall Street Journal. AT&T's motives are obvious, being the exclusive carrier of one of the most sought after devices is sure to bring in profits, but is it the best deal for Apple? Surely, if the phone was available on more carriers, we'd have a nation of i-toting enthusiasts on all carriers, rather than on the orange and blue of AT&T. Of course, as David points out, AT&T's biggest strong point is also it's weak point: iPhones use more data than most other phones, which has been known to undersatisfy consumers in iPhone dense areas. Whether or not it's good for everyone, AT&T will do it's damndest to keep the iPhone exclusive for as long as possible, which makes me think competitors like Google's Android will have to step it up if we ever want to loosen AT&T's grasp.
Microsoft has finally announced the Zune HD, meant to compete head to head with the iPod Touch. It'll have an OLED screen, and Internet Explorer browser, and will be using flash memory. The American Idol vote was allegedly influenced by AT&T. We're hearing they provided Kris Allen fans with phones with free text-messaging services and lessons on how to submit 10 text messages at once. Engadget put all the mobile broadband companies to a head-to-head speed test. AT&T won for speed, but is most expensive when it comes to overage charges. Take a look at the results from Engadget - it's pretty interesting! Apple announced new specs for the 13" white MacBook. The processor is faster at 2.13GHz. It has faster RAM, but is still 2GB, and the hard drive is bigger at 160GB. DSLR Remote is an app that allows you to control your Canon EOS DSLR with iPhone/iPod Touch. If your camera supports Live View, you'll be able to see the live stream on your iPhone screen. It'll be $20, but for a limited time after it's approved, will be selling for just $10.

Ahh, the Zune. Microsoft's been trying extremely hard to break into a market that Apple has on all-but-complete lockdown, but with the announcement of the Zune HD, Microsoft might have a shot at cracking the stranglehold of Apple's preminent media player– that is, if they can get nearly everything right. What's it going to take for people to buy the device? We talk to Chris Ziegler from Engadget, and Todd Haselton from LAPTOP Mag about the bloodbath. Chris thinks Microsoft's biggest omission is iTunes synching support. Add in the ability for people to seamlessly move from iPod to Zune with their current libraries, and the proposition makes a bit more sense. Todd thinks a potential key to the hearts of consumers might be the upcoming Xbox support. He thinks most people look at the current crop of PMPs as multifunction devices, and being a solid portable media player won't be enough.
What's your take? Do you think the Zune HD has a shot, or is Microsoft going to fail with another shot in the dark? Sound off in the comments. Distributed by Tubemogul.
It's episode 79 and Twitter is in the news, again. If you've noticed several followers using "spymaster" hash tags and announcing they've assassinated someone, it's part of a hot, new game called SpyMaster. It's the first of its kind to use Twitter as it's messaging platform and several blogs are calling this game "addictive and a major time killer." Twitter also has a new worm spreading through out the Twitterverse and this one is no joke. If you receive a tweet describing "the best video" with a link in it, do not click on the link. The Moxie Mo has all the details on this worm and what it can do if you mess with it. Microsoft announced more details on the Zune HD and PC Authorities has all the dirt of this moxie new gadget coming out in the fall. We show you what it has that Apple's iPod Touch does not and if it's truly an iPod Touch killer. Last but not least, if you know the Moxie Mo, you know he's a weather geek. Wx is a free and very powerful weather station software app for the Mac and it's the best of its kind.

It’s official, the Zune HD is out! But just because it’s been hyped a little more than we were expecting doesn’t mean it’s necessarily worth the price. We talk to Clayton Morris from Fox News, and Kevin Tofel from JKOnTheRun about the new portable media player, and whether it’s worth it or worthless.
