MacJury #916: Debating the Microsoft ZuneHD vs. the iPod, Subscription Music and More

Is the ZuneHD a serious competitor to the iPod? Does it even represent a decent alternative? The MacJury reviews evidence such as the usefulness of wireless syncing, HD radio and why it does or doesn’t matter, and the lack of a Mac client for MIcrosoft’s MP3 player. The panel debate subscription music in general and Rhapsody in particular, argue over the tagging features for songs on the radio, and determine exactly which iPod the ZuneHD is targeting. The panelists for this edition include:
