It was the first big purchase that I have treated myself too since my old laptop died last October. I don&rsquo;t really like to count my new laptop as a new purchase since I mostly use it for work and it was more like I needed to buy one instead of wanting to buy one. It was a pretty tough decision for me to choose between the Zune and other offerings out there. Everyone I know, and their grandmothers (seriously), seems to own some form of an iPod.</em> <br /><br />Rocco Augusto, aka the Nerd of Steel, has <a href="http://www.nerdofsteel.com/microsofts-zune-initial-impressions">written a nice little blog post</a> about his first impressions of the Zune. Rocco seems to like what pretty much everyone else has liked and disliked what pretty much everyone has liked. For the uninitiated, that means he likes the hardware and dislikes the software. That sounds about right! Its interesting to note that Rocco bought his specifically because he felt it would be a superior device for watching video. <br /><br />Rocco writes for one of our sister sites, <a href="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com">Smartphone Thoughts</a>, so go give them a shout out too.
