Its larger-than-the-iPod&rsquo;s display is nice and bright. I like some of the eye-candy of the interface and while it&rsquo;s no iPod, it&rsquo;s easy enough to get around on. I&rsquo;m pleased that you can zoom in on images and designate any image as a background pattern. And having a decent FM radio built-in is a plus. I find the Zune too big and too unattractive. But, again, I&rsquo;m not part of the target demographic for the player. Younger users may find its size and look perfectly acceptable.&quot;</em><br /><br />Christopher Breen from Playlist has taken a look at the Zune from several angles and written up a review. While I agree with some of what he has to say, I think he's a bit too harsh on the Zune. For example, he said that the Zune does not comfortably fit in your pocket, whereas lots of other people have said it's perfectly comfortable and you will forget that you put it in your pocket. To each his own I guess.<br /><br />Do you think he's a bit harsh?<em><br /><em></em></em>
