The iPod’s advantages are its website traveling to and purposes. If people good much more compelling, probably it is your simplest decision.

  19. The contemporary Zune browser is incredibly positive, still not as very good as the iPod’s. It operates very well, still isn’t as prompt as Safari, and has a clunkier interface.
