Best Follow-Up Comments to Hi, I'm an iPod, and I'm a Zune

by M. David Peterson

Update: So, Brianary now gets the award for not only making me laugh by finding creative ways to mock my mockery,

Girl Zune (to Zune): What are you doing?
Zune: I'm squirting a song to you!
Girl Zune: That's gross. I don't see it.
Zune: Oh, I guess the label that "owns" this song didn't allow squirting.
Girl Zune: Stop saying "squirt".


(note: you have to admit, that's pretty funny ;-))

but also for providing one of the more honest comments to the original post: One that highlights yet another true competitor: The iRiver.

I'm not interested in DRM crap that prevents me from using a UMS driver to sync my player with RoboCopy. My 1Gb, 40-hours-on-a-AA-battery iRiver iFP-799 works just fine, thanks.


Folks, this isn't about FanBoy'ism > This *IS* about finding ways to highlight the fact that there is more to life than just the iPod, and as such, *encourage competition*.

Do I love my Zune? Yep! But while I have never owned one (maybe I should change that?), to be honest, I don't recall *ever* hearing *anything bad* about iRiver. And to be even more honest: I've only heard *REALLY GOOD* things about iRiver. < Maybe you should check them out?

Sounds like a pretty safe bet to me.

Thanks for the laugh and the honesty, Brianary! :D

[Original Post]
While many of the follow-up comments to the iPod/Zune > Mac/PC parody disagreed with the premise behind the parody, you can't help but laugh and provide credit for those who actually took the time to come up with something more creative than the typical "I think you're the best writer in the whole world! You should be writing TV commercials!" M. David FanBoy/Girl club member comments which tended to be the norm. ;-)

As such, here's some of what seem to be the better, more creative efforts to provide opinions of differing persuasion,

@Brianary,


:D


Okay, so I have to give you props for not only making me laugh, but also at very least posting a straight forward and honest comment to the original post that included praise for yet another device that I believe is pretty sweet: the iRiver (of course, you already know this, but I'll be sure to let others know as well.)


Thanks for the laugh! Will bring this to the top of the post now :)

@amp,


It's a hack, but I recently discovered a way to get this to work. Will find the link and update with a comment appropriately.
