File folders are pretty ubiquitous right now aren’t they? Anyone using Windows is probably quite familiar with them right? Windows has been around now for awhile right? Microsoft developed Windows right? Microsoft developed the Zune right?
Why doesn’t the Zune interface support a folder hierarchy for files?
I’m still trying to decide if I’m going to go with the 120GB Zune or the 120GB Apple iPod Classic. Luckily the finances right now aren’t putting me in a position to make this decision immediately so I’m able to glean some good feedback from other individuals I know and online.
A friend of mine just purchased a Zune, for the most part because I recommended it to him. He was asking me about features and stuff and told me he’s as fed-up with iTunes as I am. I reminded him of the Zune and that they recently released one with a larger capacity in the 120GB version.
He called me shortly after purchasing it and getting it home to let me know that the interface doesn’t let him organize his movies into any type of folder structure. The closest he could get was to go in and edit the meta data manually to group movie files together by making them a part of the same TV series.
Does that seem right? I asked him if he had the latest Zune 3.0 software, which he said he did. Can that be right? Why wouldn’t Microsoft intuitively allow you to organize you media files into type of folder structure you could imagine?
That’s just weird.
It’s still not even close to all the frustrations I have with iTunes so I doubt it’s going to change my opinion much at this point. Just seems really weird.
