Hello Zune; bye Zune

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on September 18, 2009 by dreamphase

I preorderd the ZuneHD from amazon.com it came on the 15th. I tried to use it, but the interface is just bad. the size is perfect, but there was no didicated volume button, so you can’t adjust it if the player is in your pocket.  Also, when I put the volume at level 1 it was kinda loud. maybe I just haven’t played my music loud enough and wrecked my hearing so I need it loud, but this was frustraiting to me. I was also hoping to develop some software for the Zune. I had done a little programing for my brothers Zune 120gb.. I did a little, but it was a pain to work with the XNA studio. See what I did here. Don’t get me wrong the player was very nice, and it seemed to have a solid build, but for $300.. it just wasn’t worth it to me, so my ZuneHD is on its way back to amazon for a refund.

In other news, I have been working on cleaning up my website. A lot of the pages were made years ago before I knew any programming, so they are very messy. I haven’t uploaded anything yet, but in time I replace the pages that are up with better looking pages.
