And as with the Zune 30, Microsoft doesn't supply any kind of carrying case with the Zune 80, though you do get the premium ear buds, which is a nice touch. A carrying case was included with last year's Zune 30, and it should be included with this new high-end device as well.

I should also point out again that you can't actually buy a Zune 80 at the time of this writing, and it's unclear if that situation will change before Christmas comes and goes. Anyone hoping for a Redmond-flavored gift this holiday season might ultimately be disappointed. We'll see.

Problem: I live overseas; a Zune had to be brought from the states.

"Why use antiquated feeling iTunes. ZUNE is WAY BETTER."

Another point I think got over simplified is the way the Zune is turned on. If the player is off of hold you can press any button to turn it on. I understand why it was done, for simplification, but what is not realized is that many people do not religiously use the hold switch. So allowing the Zune to be turned on with any button will drain the battery in many real world scenarios, such as tossing the Zune in your bag, back pack, or purse. Only allowing the Zune to be turned with a long press of the center button (or pause/play, the lesser choice) would alleviate this problem.
