A Blog of my students daily thoughts about a different technology subject

March 16th, 2010 Sponge

Many people are very familiar with mp3/mp4 players these days. Most people are aware of what an iPod is and usually call EVERYTHING an iPod even if it is not really an iPod. Microsoft came out with an mp3/mp4 player years ago that is not as well known and are now introducing a new high-definition model. Explain to me why is the iPod so much more popular than the Zune and give me at least 5 comparisons and 5 contrasts between an Apple iPod, a Microsoft Zune, and ANY brand mp3/mp4 player. Watch the 2 videos to get your information. (Must be at least 8 COMPLETE sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

  1. they are more popular because they look cool and they do more things and they are more hi tech

  2. iPODS ARE MORE COOL BECAUSE THE HOLD A LOT OF MUSIC AND VIDEOS AND GAMES AND PICTURES AND MORE STUFF .

  3. because the ipod was the first thing that could hold music with out a CD and people like the ipod better than the mp3 or mp4

  4. iPODS ARE MORE COOL BECAUSE THE HOLD A LOT OF MUSIC AND VIDEOS AND GAMES AND PICTURES AND MORE STUFF.AND ALOT OF PEOPLE WANT TO GET 1 IF THEY DON’T HAVE 1

  5. iPODS ARE MORE COOL. BECAUSE THEY HOLD A LOT OF MUSIC AND VIDEOS AND GAMES AND PICTURES AND MORE STUFF .because the ipod was the first thing that could hold music with out a CD. and people like the ipod better than the mp3 or mp4.they are more popular because they look cool and they do more things and they are more hi tech.

  6. They both play music. Zune has more space for music. They both come in black. the I-pod comes in many colors other then black. There both portable. The I-pod is easier to carry around because its smaller. There screens are both visible and easy to read. The Zune has twice the sized screen as the I-pod. And the Zune has bold writing making it easier to read then the I-pod. There both easy to find if lost. the I-pod is easier to find because of its color. The Zune is easy to find because of its size.
    The I-pod is more popular because its size, different colors, convenient, and/or add ons.

  7. The Ipod is so more popular because more people no what a ipod is and use it more but with the New Microsoft Zune know one knows what it is many people dont realy know what the zune can do how long it will last but with the ipod/apple brands the buyers know what to do with the product and know how long the product will last them.

  8. I think that ipods are more popular because they are better looking. There not as bulgy. And they are more popular so everybody has them, witch makes more people want them, and that leads to it becoming even MORE popular. But since nobody really has MP3 / MP4. Nobody really wants them, or they don’t really here of them as often. And if people don’t know of something, how could they purchase it.

  9. i think that the i pod is better then the mp4 or the mp3 because on the mp4 you cant play video game but you can take videos but on the i pod you go to the internet in get games to play in is touch scream so it better because people like touch scream things now but mostly is because on the mp4 are like boring now there not as good as they us to be the i pod is peaty fun because you play games on it the same think that they both have in comment is that on the i pod you could lessen to music in the mp4 you could to in you could put video on the i pod in the mp4 you could to.

  10. I would rither go with the 3.8 than 3.7 the blak one is so cool. Now my cozuin got a green one just like the withe one. I love it but than when he wants it we bofe fite over it. I love ipts and mp3 players it is so cool.

  11. ipods are more popuLar Than zune because more peopLE are used To ipods. They prefer Them over zune.
    compare:
    1.They aLL hoLd music.
    2.They have differenT Types of desiqns They come in.
    3.They aLL can be carried .
    4. You can hoLd aLL The new sonqs
    5.They aLL are beTTer Than c.d’s
    conTasT:
    1.ipods are more popuLar Than Thee resT.
    2.you can reach The inTerneT wiTh an ipod.
    3.ipods are aLoT funner THan The resT.
    4.no one uses mp3 or mp4s reaLLy anymore.
    5. ipods even has Touch screen feaTure . more peopLe wouLd raTher qeT an ipod because you qeT a beTTer vaLue for your money.

  12. the zone and the ipod are the same to me just have a different look.

  13. the ipod is more popular cuz it has so many different generations (styles), while the zune has only one. plus people know what an ipod iz cuz its older than the zune. yet, the zune has more quality than the ipod. in the vid, the guy said that the ipod was sexier than the zune, but still, the zune has more quality and a better navigation system, even though the ipod 3rd generation has a nav. system & pedometer the zune is better in this type of subject. 🙂 😮 😀 😦 😛

  14. I THINK THAT MOST PEOPLE SHOULD GET THE NEW ZANO BECAUSE IT CAN DOWN LODE 2,000 SONGS AND IT DOES NOT NEED A BARTY TO THAT WHY YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT CHANGING THE BARTER-RE BACK AND FORTH ALL DAY AND EVIN SOME TIMES NIGHT YOU WONT NEED TOY WORRY ABOUT IT BECAUSE WHEN IT IS CHARGING ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SAT BACK AND RELAX BUT IF YOU WANT TO LISEN TO IT YOU CAN THAT IS THE COOL PART MY MOM IS SAVING UP HER MONEY TO GET IT WHEN IT COMES OUT ALL SO THE I POD YOU COULD LOSE EASYLEE..CG..3P

  15. ipod’s hold more music. there newer plus you can do so much more on them than you can do on a mp3 player.

  16. i think they are more popular because on the ipod yuhh kan do more things lyk games internet music and its just better than a mp3 &ndd& mp4 playahh :)) thtz whtt i thinkk

  17. I think that ipods are more popular because there are different generations and stuff. and the zune not many.thats all i got to say… and on theres diffrent colors and and sizes while the othere one dont. so yea

  18. They both play music. There both popular. They have different types of designs. They can all be hand held. But people would most likely get the Zano. They would because it can hold more songs (2,000). It does not need a battery. You can listen to it all day and all night. You can listen to all music you like out loud and also with earphones.

  19. ITS TOUCH SCREEN PLUS HIGHER UPGRADED

  20. IPODS ARE POPULAR BECAUSE THEY ARE ALWAYS GETING BETTER AND NEW. THERE IS ONLY ONE TIPE OF ZUNE AND THEY HAVE NOT MADE NEW ONES YET

  21. I think that everybody should have a zano because it can downlode 2,000 songs and it does not need a barty to that why you don’t have to worry about changing the barter-re back and forth all day and evin some times night you won’t need toy worry about it because when it is charging all you have todo is sat back and relax but if you want to lisen to it you can that is the cool part my mom is saving up her money to get it when it coms out all so the Ipod you could los easylee

  22. Mst people like i pods beause they are popular. Many people prefer i pods because they are popular. They somewhat hold more music. And tones of people love the way they work. But asking me i love mp3/mpp4z they are awsome. They are unioque and less expinsive than most i pods. They are easey to handle. And relley arent that bad. they all play music and can do lots of workMp3 are awsome

  23. ipods are better beacuse it haz lots more fetures and not just for music. also not much people have our mp4s they mostly have ipods

  24. i.d.k?

  25. I say i pod is mare popular than because its original touch screen tech is awesome and popular among everyone.While like the sansa is an mp3/4 player but its not all that popular because its not a touch screen.Other than the i pod there is other tech that has pretty much the same thing but there not that popular because there just coping apple.That’s the only reasons i can think of.

  26. Apple has the original touch screen interface, where MP4 maker Colby’s touch screen is a re-make of an Ipod touch. Zune only works with PC models, but Ipod And Colby MP3/MP4 players work with Mac and PCs. Zunes and Ipods are around the same price as each other, but the Colby MP3/MP4 players are a whole lot cheaper. Ipods and Zunes can be found commonly, Colby models are easier to come by. Ipods are Apple pruducts, where Zune is Microsoft.

  27. i think the ipod are better becuse u can put more music on it

  28. The ipod is better. You have more selection. They have so many more colors. There are a lot of models. For the most part they are cheap. The zune i have never heard of. MP3’s are not as good. You cannwatch videos on the ipod and you cant on most MP3 if any at all.

  29. I think that everybody should have a zano because it can downlode 2,000 songs and it does not need a barty wich ues a lot of power to charg.

  30. Apple’s most well-known product is most likely the “iPod”. They have released many versions of this small mp3/mp4 player in the last few years. Throughout these multiple version releases, they have gained outstanding popularity. Although the iPod has more and more been put out as the only “main” brand of mp players…there is also another type that society has lost the sense for. Microsoft’s “Zune” was released later than the iPod. Even with this significant advantage, they still were not able to meet the standard at which Apple set. In present times, the iPod has taken the form of touch screen and wireless internet capabilities. Also, the music source, iTunes, has become more and more successful with a larger variety of reliable music, videos, pod-casts, books, and shows. If Zune attempts to come back to the public, they will have much to prove before they have the chance to attain the status at which Apple has claimed.

  31. for one they are all pretty much the same they both hold music they both can get videos and they both are expensive they both are worth the money and they both have screens. the diff. is that one looks better than the other. one other reason is that one has more apps. and the other doesnt.

  32. Well there are many comparisons between the i pod and the zune. Well they both hold music, you can watch videos, you can surf the web, and they both you can listen radio stations on. Well there are some contrast though. They have different resolutions, different prices, one is more popular than the other, they have different battery charging capabilities, and they are made by different rival companies. Well they are made by either Microsoft or i pod. I would prefer i pod though because they are the experts at making that kind of things unlike Microsoft. Which, I think in my opinion, should stay to making computers because you never know the mac might come back and become more popular.

  33. ipods are more popuLar Than zune because more peopLE are used To ipods. They prefer Them over zune.
    compare:
    1.They aLL hoLd music.
    2.They have differenT Types of desiqns They come in.
    3.They aLL can be carried .
    4. You can hoLd aLL The new sonqs
    5.They aLL are beTTer Than c.d’s
    conTasT:
    1.ipods are more popuLar Than Thee resT.
    2.you can reach The inTerneT wiTh an ipod.
    3.ipods are aLoT funner THan The resT.
    4.no one uses mp3 or mp4s reaLLy anymore.
    5. ipods even has Touch screen feaTure . more peopLe wouLd raTher qeT an ipod because you qeT a beTTer vaLue for your money.Well there are many comparisons between the i pod and the zune.

And the Zune has bold writing making it easier to read then the I-pod. There both easy to find if lost. the I-pod is easier to find because of its color. The Zune is easy to find because of its size.
    The ipod is more popular because its size, different colors, convenient, and/or add ons.

  35. ipods are way cool because they are newer and hold lots of videos,music,pictures,games. also more expensive the better

  36. IT is touch screen. its cool and you can watch movies. on mp3 there old. the i pods get newer and better each year. mp3 don’t got as much as a i pod. i pods you can do better stuff that don’t cost much. i pods are today technology mp3 are last year. i pods got games and internet. but mp3 players don’t have that.

  37. i think that the ipod is better becuase you can do more things. you can play games. or listen to music. you can go on internet. and you cant do that with the mp3 or mp4.it is touch screen. it has more tecnolage. i like it better.

  38. I THINK THAT THE IPOD IS MORE POP ULAR THAN THE ZUNE CAUSE THE IPOD IS REALLY COOL AND THE ARE COMING OUT WITH MORE TYPES OF IPODS ALL THE TIME . LIKE THE TOUCH SCREEN ONE AND EVERYBODY LOVES THAT CAUSE IT IS A TOUCH SCREEN. THE ZUNE REALLY HASNT BEEN AROUND LONG ENOUGH FOR PEOPLE TO REALLY KNOW IF IT IS WORTH SPENDING ALL THERE MONEY IN IT YET.

  39. because the ipod was the first thing that could hold music with out a CD and people like the ipod better than the mp3 or mp4 i think though. i love the ipod. i dont care bout the mp3. or the lame mp4. they are lame.Apple’s most well-known product is most likely the “iPod”. They have released many versions of this small mp3/mp4 player in the last few years. Throughout these multiple version releases, they have gained outstanding popularity.if you dont like the ipod you are weird!!

  40. the i pods are plane out better. because they hold more songs also. and the i pods have i pods touch. and the mp3 is just old. you need to stay in style.and they look nicer.and i like the i pods better. my i pod had a video camera on it.

  41. i think the ipod is better because every one has it and plus it has more what the zune and mp 3and4 have on them.u have more selection on what u want on it.their in so many more colors it has lots more features ipod’s hold more music.

  42. i thank the mp4 is better because it holds more storage. and it is cooler. the mp3 don’t hold a lot of songs. and mp4 on some of them you can see a picture. a i pod is just cooler. that is my opinion.

  43. they r cool nd tite. they both play music. n plus they kind have da same features n all dat. the has more space the ipod doesnt have alot like da zune.they are portable nd can be used any were. the ipod batterie lives longer but da zune dosent. the ipod is small nd da zune iz a little bit small. nd i think the zune iz beta den the ipod. they all come out n different colors. which iz cold as heck. the aint popular cuz it aint ben out long nd da ipod has ben out longer den the zune. but i think it iz beta. they play movies and u could put yo pics on dem anytime. the zune has big writing so u can get 2 da features faster. ipod kind of does it dats wat i think.the ipod has small writing nd u cant c it. well a little bit. but i like da zune nd dats all i got 2 say.

  44. the ipods are more popular than the zunes.they are use to the ipod but not the zunes
    1.they all have music
    2.they have internet
    3.different kinds of designs
    4. tuch screen
    5. can be carried around
    most people rather have the ipods than the zunes.because its more funner.and because of the size of the ipod

  45. I think the Ipod is better because it has more cooler models. Microsoft is older than Apple’s ipod. The ipod has better models. Microsoft has only a few. The ipod opened up the generation for the mp3. Microsoft was left behind. I think that the ipod is better is because it was revolutionary. The zune wasn’t.

  46. I think the ipod is better because on the ipod you can get on the internet, play games, and hold more songs and videos. and if you have an ipod you can download music from itunes, on mp3 and mp4 u can not get on itunes and download music, games, and videos. and i think the ipod keeps getting better and better every year. the mp3’s and mp4’s are the same and old. the mp3’s and mp4’s can not hold that much music. and they cant hold videos and games.

  47. The i pod is more popular because everybody is more used to it and it is better.
    Compare
    1. They both have music
    2. They come in different designs most of the time
    3. You can carry them everywhere
    4. you can put on or delete songs any time you want
    5. You can listen to it while travling

    Contrast
    1. I pods have been around longer
    2. you can get a i pod touch
    3. you can watch movies with the i pod
    4. the i pods have a newer version every year
    5. i pods are better

  48. Well there are many comparisons between the i pod and the zune.
    1: they both hold music
    2: you can watch videos
    3: you can surf the web
    4: you can listen radio stations on

  49. i don’t know

  50. ipod’s are more reconized because they are better than mp3’s and 4’s because ipods are way better than them. and i think everyone is upgrading to ipods other than the later versions.

    2.they all have the internet on them
    3.they can all be carried everywhere
