As my new baby&rsquo;s arrival date draws closer, I&rsquo;m realizing that I have a lot of preparation to do in order to get my life ready for such a monumental change. After all, I listen to my iPod at my desk for no less than six hours per day. Spiffy as it may be, the Zune may potentially upset my daily routine if I don&rsquo;t prepare in advance.&quot;</em> </p><p>While waiting for his new toy to arrive, Steven Peterson has been putting some thought into how to make his transition from his iPod to a Zune as smooth and pain free as possible. He has also been kind enough to share his migration tips with the rest of us. Steven brings up some very good points, like finding an alternative to podcast subscripts and ensuring your videos are in a compatible format. While Steven is migrating from an iPod, most of his tips apply to almost any MP3 player: iPod, PlaysForSure, or otherwise. So if you thinking about migrating from your boring old MP3 player to an exciting new Zune (go with brown!), be sure to check out <a href="http://selfhack.com/2006/11/13/preparing-for-the-zune-in-5-easy-steps/">these five helpfull tips</a> that are sure to make your experience a little smoother.</p>

Done and done! (It's all part of being device-agnostic.) Except for step 5, but only because I don't like to evangelize anything that I have no experience with.
