Thumbs down Prizefight Battle On CNet Between The iPod Nano And The Zen V Plus!

Did you guys/girls see the CNet prizefight battle between the iPod Nano and the Zen V Plus. If you haven't, here it is:


I can't believe they gave the iPod an 18, and gave the Zen only a 17!

*End Of Spoilers*

What do you people at ABi have to say about this? [other than CNet is biased towards iPods (usually), which most of us already know]

Who the hell uses a mac anyway? BOOO!!! The Zen is better, we all know it. And the joystick just takes some getting used to, I actually prefer it to the stupid scroll wheel. And come on, who doesn't love a little pocket porn. ;-)

Nothing out of the ordinary from CNET; I mean, how can they possibly rate the iPod Nano over the Zen V Plus? Two specific reasons why they're wrong:

1) The last round was extremely unfair; they don't take into account that you can use plenty of different alternatives to WMP with the Zen V Plus. Also, you can choose your download service and even use a subscription service on the V Plus, which is a very overlooked difference in the overall comparison. This freedom is something that should have resulted in the Zen earning a better score in the Performance round.

2) The obvious sheer advantage of an FM tuner and FM/voice recording on the Zen is completely ignored. This could have earned the iPod Nano an even lower score in the features round, since, after all, the Zen got a 5.
