I wrote a while ago about my decision to replace the dead iPod with a Creative Zen. I think my biggest disappointment with the Zen is the lack of integration of the whole thing. There are separate bits of software for podcasts, music, video conversion, and synchronising, and it’s not immediately clear whether the Zen software should be doing the synching or if Windows Media Player should be in charge.
If I can’t figure it out after 27 years of messing around with computers, a degree in Computer Science, and 15 years of IT experience, what chance does the average guy have? Not a snowballs, I suspect.
