Will You Be Getting A Zune HD?


  The Zune has a sympathetic pull on the gadget loving side of me.  While I generally use Apple products, I like the drive of the underdog.  Microsoft knows how to play catchup as we have seen with the Xbox 360 and the great experience many of us have online with our friends.  The real question is will Microsoft hit a home run with the Zune HD?  If you have an iPod Touch then you can guess the Zune HD will have a similar feature set.  The real problem lies in the lack of a hugely successful app store.  I am cautiously optimistic that Zune HD can deliver such an app store, but Microsoft has a vast pocket to draw from.  The marketing power of a company with such monetary resources that far outweigh most companies certainly helps get Zune noticed.

Apple Household Adoption Up

  More homes are adopting an Apple computer.  Analysts say this is "driven by positive experiences with Apple’s other products, as well as disenchantment with the Windows world."  Their market shares rose to 10.4% as of the end of the first quarter of 2008.  This is up roughly 3% since last year at the same time.  Analysts also believe this is due in part to the satisfaction or adoption of iPods and other Apple products.  It seems their Apple Stores have helped this along too.  Well if that wasn’t obvious enough, you can hardly move in any of them.  Enterprise adoption also continues to be on the rise.  Up to 4.4% which is double the enterprise adoption from last year.
