Who would have said that Apple would become uncontested king of music player market. Just 20 years ago Sony's Walkman and later Discman dominated the music player market. In very late 2009, when tapes are long gone and MP3s are far more popular than...

The Microsoft Zune HD is the Zune that I wish Microsoft had released last year. I found a lot to like about the Zune HD and the Zune 4.0 software. The device marks a huge improvement from last year's model in speed, usability, video quality, and...

All I can say is “WOW”. As much as Microsoft may have missed the mark with previous generations of the Zune, they really nailed it this time. The Zune HD looks and sounds fantastic. Toss in that bright, vibrant screen for videos, along...
