Zune review feedback: half for, half against

Response to the Zune review was 50-50 — half the people who e-mailed seemed to like the review and offered thanks or asked for more info. The other half tore into me for shilling for Microsoft, which is odd because I didn’t think the review was all that glowing. Here’s a sample:

“You’re the first journalist who hasn’t written what an absolute hunk of crap the Zune is. You even got a kid to say how cool brown is. How many cookies did you have to bribe him with? Oh yeah, and there are those unnamed Apple store employees. Now THAT is compelling. There’s only one answer: you must be on Microsoft’s payroll. You’re close enough to drive in to get your paycheck!”

“Nice article, especially the comparison to the Camaro. I and many of my

generation feel that the ’68 Camaro is one of the sexiest muscle cars in

the world. Think I’ll buy a Zune and tell everyone it fits me perfectly:

powerful, fast and incredibly sexy. Perfect for the nacent middle-age

American male :-)”
