Several of us got the new Microsoft Zune for Christmas. It is a great music and movie (yep, I got all of the Lord of the Rings on mine) player. Now everyone is walking around with ear buds in and the house is very quiet. Kinda nice.
The greatest thing about these devices is the music that is available. For a relative small fee you can download all the music you want – talk about a trip to the past. Almost any artist I wanted (or remembered) is there. Like the Animals, Beach Boys, Kingston Trio (now that is going back). My nephew is downloading the new songs and artists and some are not bad at all.
