Okay–I just downloaded the Zune software and signed up for “the Social” by signing in with my normal Live ID — the same e-mail address I use with Messenger. Next thing I know, I get a huge greeting “Welcome kansasgirl!”. On top of that, it tells me that my unique URL where friends can see my current music is with “kansasgirl” in the URL. What the ….? Where in the world did I ever set that? Yes, it’s obviously me…but I have no idea where “kansasgirl” was ever set. I signed into Live, Spaces, looked in Messenger, no clue. I can’t change it. Can’t figure it out. kansasgirl?
ipod or zune?
I’m so annoyed–my iPod just died. I noticed it was dead on the flight home from Vegas to Seattle…but I thought it was perhaps the battery (which was odd as I had it plugged in all weekend). I just took it out, plugged it into the wall and it won’t turn on. Nada. Boo. So now, what to do? I started checking out mp3 players–and it really just comes down to the iPod or the Zune. Here’s what I like about the Ipod: I’ve been using an Ipod forever…like, since the 2nd generation one. Product loyalty, yah. Because I used the Ipod forever, I’ve been freakin’ buying music off iTunes…
Playing with Hulu
It’s 1:09am and I finally got a beta invite to check out Hulu.com, the new online video service featuring content from NBC, FOX, MGM, Universal…heck, a lot of the big players. (thanks Euge for the invite!) I’m still getting a hang of it but am definitely noticing a heck of a lot of shows that I happen to like and watch (The Office, SNL, Heroes, 30 Rock, etc…) After previewing a few, I realized that it’s Hulu that powered the episode of Desperate Housewives I watched the other night when my DVR failed to record it. Neat! I’ll have to follow up with a more thorough review after going through…
