    Does anybody know of a media playe that will play both videos and songs when on shuffle, thats the only thing i really miss from the iphone.

  4. Ash says:

    Apple presently has Rhapsody as an app, the industry great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally in your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If the changes, then it’ll somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs monthly will still be a large plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    Rock Player is also very good. Deserves its place in this list.
