Default O'Reilly: Half a Dozen Lessons Apple Should Take From the Zune

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.oreillynet.com/digitalmedia/blog/2007/01/a_half_dozen_lessons_that_appl.html' target='_blank'>http://www.oreillynet.com/digitalmedia/blog/2007/01/a_half_dozen_lessons_that_appl.html</a><br /><br /></div><em>&quot;Yeah, yeah. The Zune may be a miserable failure according to some, but there are definitely some positive points about the Zune that Apple should take note of and consider emulating. Here is my list of six lessons Apple might consider learning from the Zune and implementing in their iPod line.&quot;</em> <br /><br />Some of Erica Sadun's points are valid. Fingerprint and scratch-resistant? That's a big one. One thing I love about the Zune is its hardiness, though to Apple's credit, the current generation iPod nano and iPod shuffle deserve some of the limelight because they do not share the same scratch-happy characteristics of the hard disk-based iPods. And what about the not-so-valid points? All the chatter about improved menus and a bigger screen had merit prior to the start of the new year, though with Apple's iPhone set to hit us in a few months time, said points are effectively nullified.<br /><br />Can you think of any to add to Erica's list?
