Default Want to Win a Pink Zune? Here's How...

<img border="0" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/500/zt/auto/1189548268.usr1.jpg" alt="" /><br /><br />It just so happens that I have a pink Zune to give away, and it just so happens that <em><strong>most</strong></em> of you Zune Thoughts readers are eligible. Why &quot;most&quot;? Here's why: since launching Zune Thoughts nearly a year ago, I've given away two Zunes. Being in Canada, I'm particularly sensitive to the frustration of seeing a contest where it says &quot;USA only&quot;, so I always strive to have my contests be open to anyone in the world - that's the way I think it should be. <br /><br />Random chance seems to agree: both of the Zunes I gave away went outside North America. One went to Poland, and one went to The Netherlands. Much to my dismay, <strong><em>in both cases the Zune never showed up for the winner!</em></strong> The second one was particularly baffling because it was send via Purolator courier with a tracking number (the first was regular postal mail) - after a two week investigation the courier company declared the package as lost. The first Zune I gave away was paid for out of my own pocket, and the second one was donated by the Zune team, but it's still frustrating for a winner not to get their prize. So, because of the problems I've had with my two previous Zune contests, I have no choice but to declare this contest only open to people in the USA or Canada (sorry Mexico). Maybe future contests I'll feel more lucky and try to ship it someplace far away...<br /><br />So how do you enter this contest? Simple: just post a message in this thread telling me one of the features that you like about the Zune. I'll randomly select one person that posts, and that person will win the Zune. That's it! I'll leave this contest open until <strong>12 noon (GMT -7) on Thursday the 20th</strong>.

Default Clearly a visualizer would be awesome!

Before you say anything... think about it. A visualizer would be awesome. No other device has it and you could show it your friends and they would be all like "Wow 1999 called and they want their feature back." and you would be all like "Whatever. I like it."
On second thought how about a browser.

FM Radio is my favorite of the standard features, especially the Zune's ability to read metadata from the radio stations about what song is playing.

Default Favorite Feature - random play

Hi, Jason. Sorry to hear about the loss of the first two contest Zunes. :-(

My favorite feature of the many would have to be the ability to tell it to play all songs in random order. I use my Zune while working out and rather than try to decide what to listen to, I use this feature to let it play a surprise for me. It works great!

I was going to say "You should have used UPS" but then I just checked the traking number of the last UPS package I sent which was my Zune to the repair center and it took over 10 days to get there! They're only a few states away!

I guess you just can't trust anyone to deliver your packages on time, or actually deliver them anymore

My favorite feature is the quality of the video screen. It large enough to have good looking videos but still small enough to fit in my pocket.

I would have to say...the UI. It's the only "new" thing that's innovative and works.

Good luck to all.
