Zune 80 man here. It's served me well, but both that I've had (includes warranty replacement) have lost their 'hold' toggle due to the shitty plastic. I'm considering buying the 64HD 'cause it's hawt. Also, I'm trying to find a cheap touch to fuck around with the SDK and maybe make an app or something.
I use a Sony Walkman E something. I can't see myself ever buying an iPod simply because I would have to rerip all 340 of the CDs I ripped before 2001. There are conversion programs available but I am not going to convert a lossy format to another lossy format. I actually usually only use it for exercise and mowing because if I'm in the car I use an actual CD and if I'm in the house I use regular CDs as well (2 Sony 300 disc changers connected in series circa 1999.)
iPod/iPhone is the only Apple product that I can touch without getting the urge to eat my own shoes.
My contract with ATT is up on the 31st and thanks to corporate, I'm stuck with them. So it's either the iPhone 4 or the Samsung Galaxy S (Captivate)... I'm thinking I better start liking iPhone, so that I can make a purely unbiased decision on that date.

While it always sucks to get stuck with a particular service by your corporate overlords, if "corporate" in your case is a nationwide company AT & T is sadly the best choice. Verizon is really the only competitor that even comes close to matching AT&T's full national voice coverage much less data. My understanding is that AT& T can be crappy in parts of NYC and San Francisco (and I'm sure other locations as well as every provider has weak spots). I've been with Verizon for almost 2 years, and I can't wait for my contract to be up to switch back to AT & T. I had Cingular (now AT&T) for 6 years and never should have switched.
