Battle of the iPod and the Zen..
So I found that the iPod Classic has some Audio issues. See here and here. Hence, I decided not to go for it.. Might not be a big deal for most, but I won’t be happy.. With that in mind the 5.5G iPod Video looks like a good buy. It’s cheaper, and has great audio, and all the things the Classic has, except it’s only 30G/60G and there is no coverflow (who cares abt it anyway)….
The world of technolgy is full of dualities or battles..Nvidia vs ATI
UNIX vs BSD
KDE vs GNOME
XBOX360 vs PS3
Blue-ray vs HD-DVD
vi vs emacsFor me.. there has always been another one..
Apple iPod vs Creative Zen.
And after I dropped my Zen Vision:M a couple of weeks back (yes yes.. I know I am stupid…), I am looking for a new Portable Media Player.. and I have shortlisted the iPod Classic 80G and the Creative Zen 16G .
Here’s the comparison..
|Storage||80G HDD||16G Flash|
|Screen||2.5″ TFT LCD||2.5″ TFT LCD|
|Audio Formats||MP3, AAC-DRM, Apple Lossless, AAC, WAV, Audible, AIFF||MP3, WMA, WMA-DRM, WAV, Audible|
|Video Formats||H.264, MPEG4, Quicktime||WMV, DivX, Xvid, AVI, MJPEG|
|Extensibility||No||SD Card Slot|
After all that… I am still lost.. Or maybe I should just wait for Macworld… Till then my old MD player still sounds sweet.. :)
