Microsoft needs to stop being a follower and start being a leader…

Mr. Mossberg just handed down his verdict on the latest series of Microsoft Zunes. Those of you who shout him down with your flaccid cries of “fanboi” will want to turn away… now. Walt considers the new Zunes a “vast improvement” over Microsoft’s first generation player. However, “it’s still no iPod.”
Notably, Walt found the included WiFi to be “nearly useless” in value while providing an unwelcome drain on the battery. In summation he says, “Microsoft has greatly improved the Zune hardware and software this time. But it seems to be competing with Apple’s last efforts, not its newest ones.” Hmm, this all sounds strangely familiar.
