Zune Set to Launch Amid Tepid Reviews

Harsh reality check from Paul Thurrott 

If the early reviews are any indication, Apple has little to fear from the first-generation Zune, although Microsoft has pledged to follow it up with more designs in the year ahead. The initial device is heavier and thicker than the iPod, and has worse battery life, even when the Wi-Fi features are turned off. The device is also incompatible with virtually all available iPod accessories and appears to have no compelling reason for existing other than to satisfy the vanity and hubris of certain Microsoft executives.
