  1. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  2. One more thing I would like to express is that in place of trying to fit all your online degree courses on days of the week that you end work (as most people are worn out when they go back home), try to get most of your sessions on the week-ends and only one or two courses for weekdays, even if it means taking some time off your weekend. This is really good because on the week-ends, you will be much more rested and also concentrated on school work. Many thanks for the different recommendations I have mastered from your site.
