  3. Joseph Scott Says:

    For being the product manager he sure doesn’t know much about the specifics of the device. When Scoble asked about the resolution of the screen he didn’t know. That just strikes me as odd.

    Anyone can be put in front of a camera and say that this is great and looks cool, but the reason you interview “people in the know” is to get details. I wasn’t that impressed.

    Over use of the term product.

    So wireless sharing is supposed to be a killer feature, but they didn’t have two available to test this?

  4. zune scene Says:

    That was odd that inside Zune headquaters there was no second zune to be found. Also, the zune product manager didn’t know the screen resolution but the interviewer did. Otherwise this was a great interview for people just learning about the zune for the first time.

  5. bobo Says:

    good interview. wow. it looks a lot, lot cooler than the ipod. i like the radio, social aspect, huge screen and the subscription option. i think most people will really like it. finally we have a real alternative to the ipod.

  6. madhu Says:

    hi robert,
    i just wanted to say a couple of comments…

    1. how many diff computers can u connect to with a single zune
    2. why not give the mic, to the guy who is talking… i found myself walking back to the pc all the time to put down the volume, and then put it up.. or maybe try to get a bluetooth mic for the other guy.. it might be a great one…
    3. and just curious, what camera do u use, and what software do u use to convert the video to mov..?

  8. A (Video) Look at the Zune « Matt’s Geek Log Says:

    […] Robert Scoble just released a video interviewing the Product manager of the Zune team Matt Jubelirer. They explore and talk about some basics of how the Zune works and what features are available. Scoble points out one thing in the video that is very cool and that is the Subscription service that the Zune Marketplace will have. Unlike other services *cough* *cough* like iTunes you will be able to purchase a subscription for 14.99 a month and will be able to download as many songs as you like from the “millions” of songs available on the Zune Marketplace. One thing funny I find in this video is that they can’t find another Zune to demonstrate sharing music between players yet their at the Zune Headquarters. Though through some parts of the video you want to fall asleep as the Product manager goes on and on about experience and the community aspect of the Zune, overall it’s a good look at the Zune Player. Also, the Zune is to hit stores the 14th of November. […]

  9. Eric Nordberg Says:

    So I think this product is a real step forward (compared to *other* products). I think the PM mentioned something powerful - remove the hardware and let the content drive the interface. Doesn’t that just scream “touchscreen” (i.e. no D-pad or scroll-wheel)? Maybe it’s just me. Also, isn’t it a little “wonky” that you can choose a picture for your background but when you choose it it’s in landscape mode and when it displays it’s in portrait mode - Grrrr….that’s silly - it should have the photo display in the same way, right? Isn’t that disappointing in some ways (to have your photo automagically chopped)?

  10. John Walker Says:

    Cool video and I think Zune is interesting. I just wish the marketing guy had a sense of humor :)

  13. Robert Scoble Says:

    madhu: I only have two microphones, sorry. Dealing with audio is quite a skill and one I’m still working on. Most TV networks have people who just do audio. I don’t have that ability right now.

    I use a Sony ZV1 or something like that. It’s a $4,000 HD camcorder.

    I use a Macintosh with Final Cut Express HD to edit and prepare the videos.

  14. I.T's Just Business Says:

    Zune, Scoble and the All Blacks…

    In Robert Scoble’s in depth look at the Zune he is wearing an All Blacks shirt. Cool.


  15. Scott Says:

    I was shocked at how cheap this thing looked. Very cheap plastic looking. Microsoft still doesn’t get the details.

    I do like the larger screen, I think the social sharing aspect is overrated as it has to be purposely crippled for legal reasons. Also, wifi has to be a huge battery drain.

    Interesting but certainly no iPod killer. Good to have more competition though.

  16. Robert Scoble Says:

    Scott: actually there I’ll disagree with you. My son has a brand new 80GB iPod and the Zune feels and looks just as well engineered and put together. Not cheap plastic looking in my hand. I think it actually looks better in person than on video.

    That said, it has its work cut out. I don’t think it’s going to win many sales vs. the iPod.

  17. What Will You See Next? » Blog Archive » Scoble On Zune: And Another Thing, Micro-Employment Says:

    […] Comments on Robert Scobles podcat on Zune may have come a little early to pick up oin the news that Microsoft are considering making payments to people who refer a song to a friend, when that friend then buys the track. […]

  18. TC Says:

    Talk about low key…bored me beyond belief!
    Why demo a brown one? It’s a pity as the Zune software does have some features that look worthwhile but can easily be copied.
    Has MS marketing sunk so low? My lasting impression is of a product that no one expects to succeed. Hope Ballmer doesn’t view this -he might just keel over!

    Robert are you encoding your output as H264? This download is huuuge.

  19. some1 Says:

    I’m on a slow connection, someone watch the video and tell me the technical specs if they’ve covered those? Does it play WMA Pro and WMA lossless? What other audio formats?

  20. Zune Says:

    Microsoft also removed the Dj feature. That was one of the best feature the Wifi could give us… Read at Clic Zune

  22. deviate Says:

    Hey Scoble, your website looks funny in IE7 and it has multiple javascript errors (null exceptions).

    Also why can’t you post your video in alternative formats, this quicktime tried to install itunes and displays popup ads about buyint a pro version.

    Going to watch the video now…

  23. Robert Scoble Says:

    Deviate: hmmm, I’m using IE 7 here and don’t see those problems. Can you email me a screenshot?

    Other formats will come. They take time to produce and I’ve just hired a guy to do that kind of stuff — he starts in November.

    Some1: I don’t remember covering that.

  24. Rob Cannon Says:

    Not very impressive. I had high hopes for the Zune, but it sounds like they designed a product by commitee instead of by being truly innovative. Did you notice that every time Robert asked about a potentially cool feature, the reply was “well our research/scenario doesn’t indicate that we need that.” Hopefully Zune 2.0 (or 3.0!!) will impress.

  28. In-depth Look at the Zune « the 60 billion $$ man Says:

    […] Looks as though PodTech (Robert Scoble anyone?) sat down with Matt Jubelirer, product manager of the Zune program and got a 40 minute video out of it. The video runs through the Zune in detail and really gives a nice overview of Microsoft’s answer to the iPod. […]

  29. Will Says:

    Robert, I don’t know if this has already been suggested to you, but a “keep on top” thumbtack on the video window would be a welcomed feature. The window is small enough for me to work around and the video is too long for me to watch without flipping to another window to do other things.

    There were a few points in this video when I wanted to quickly flip to see what you were showing (I listened to instead of watched most of it while working) and I had to dig through a stack of opened IE windows to find where the player was.

    What would look nice would be the white one done up in chrome around the screen and a chrome pad. to follow the lines.

  33. Rory Says:

    Cool video :)

    I’m jealous of the lapel mics. I want to get some for C9 - don’t suppose you’d chat with me a little about your mic setup, would you?

    Also, technical comment: I wouldn’t pan quite so hard to the left/right - I like the differentiation, but it’s a *little* too hard - keep the (virtual) knobs a little closer to center, but still maintain the panning.

    Otherwise, good stuff. I was just down in that area recording a video yesterday - surprised I didn’t run into you.

    Small world, yo :)

  35. koogle Says:

    yes certainly should have had someone more enthusiastic about the product for the interview. I think the lack of humour wasn’t so good…busy day eh?

    Anyway so many things they could have done to make this product a true ipod killer for the holiday season…

    I could go on a mention features that should have been possible. Scoble even mentioned few that weren’t currently possible.

    At least there making a start. Anyway I found out enough about the product to know I will be more interested in waiting to see what a Zune 3 has to offer instead, or maybe Zune2 if they get the right customer feedback and actually do something about it. ;)

  36. Ryan Spooner Says:

    Looks pretty cool overall, but did you all notice how he kept saying “thats not what people are doing right now” when asked about cool new features that the Zune doesn’t have. Doesn’t he realise that the reason people are not doing those things now is because no-one has those features yet? There was a real opportunity to innovate and impress with this product, but I think they have wasted the opportunity in a pretty big way. I still think the wireless features are cool though, even if they are over simplified. Microsoft if you are reading this… instead of having focus groups looking at what folks are doing now, why not ask a wide range of folks what they want from the device instead?

  37. Sebastian Says:

    Too much “coming this holiday season” and I agree, he didn’t know the basic specs…

  38. DY Says:

    Interesting how the “Microsoft Guy” leaves the company and starts using a Mac… hmmmm very telling

  39. Robert Scoble Says:

    DY: I’m still using a Tablet PC for most things. The Mac is better for HD video.

  40. Rory Says:

    DY -

    “Interesting how the “Microsoft Guy” leaves the company and starts using a Mac… hmmmm very telling”

    How is that “telling”?

    *I’m* a Microsoft guy, and I’ll happily tell you that I use Macs at home and that I’ve purchased them for family members.

    Apple makes great stuff.

    Doesn’t mean I don’t use Windows and PCs at home - just that the universe isn’t this black and white either/or scenario when it comes to technology.

    I also run various linux distros for fun. And I use iTunes. And I use Firefox.

    Doesn’t mean I don’t also use WMP and IE7.

    In an ideal world, I’d actually have a MBP and dual boot between Windows and OS X. They’re both great operating systems.

    Not “telling” at all, in my opinion.

  41. Robert Scoble Says:

    Rory, not to mention that I run Windows inside MacOSX by using Parallels.

    Oh, and I was an Apple fan long before I was a Microsoft fan. Way back in 1977.

  42. More Zune « Conversant on many subjects Says:

    […] There’s a been heaps of buzz here in Seattle about the Zune (I go by at least two billboards on my daily commute). I just watched a little vblog post by Robert Scoble and came away with the following thoughts. […]

  43. Rory Says:

    “Rory, not to mention that I run Windows inside MacOSX by using Parallels.”

    Which is awesome - best of both worlds.

    “Oh, and I was an Apple fan long before I was a Microsoft fan. Way back in 1977.”

    I’m sure I would have been, but I was busy gestating at the time :)

  44. Mule Says:

    I just keep thinking - put the Micro-Framework on it, put the Micro-Framework on it, put the Micro-Framework on it. That’d be cool.

    Is there going to be a Mac Zune client so you can sync your Zune AND use Final Cut?

  49. Clicked : Never start at the beginning Says:

    […] Posted: Thursday, October 26, 2006 12:42 PM by Will Femia Better Beginnings: how to start a presentation, book, article…  This seemed like the kind of business blogging link I usually pass over, but out of curiosity I checked my own answer to that question against the list and found the perspective interesting.  The lessons I’ve learned about creative writing have recommended beginning before the beginning of the story you’re telling.  By the time you get to your story, your narrative is richer and your sense of the story and writing momentum are improved.  I’ve also heard of actors being instructed to improvise a scene that would take place a few minutes before the scene they’re scripted to act.  This link advises beginning after the beginning, which is to say, chop off your beginning because it’s probably boring.  Similar advice, a little different angle.  News people use the expression, “Don’t bury the lead.” Speaking of burying, item number three was also a familiar lesson.  In listening through past interviews I’ve done, I found that I would often review history with the guest in the beginning, which makes chronological sense, but buries the good part that would make anyone listen past the first minute or two.  If the history is so relevant, circle back to it later. Scott Adams the Dilbert guy lost his voice permanently to something called Spasmodic Dysphonia and then retrained his brain to enable speech with a simple nursery rhyme.  It’s an amazing story.  It reminds me a little of the stories of people using biofeedback to overcome paralysis (a credible report of which I’m presently unable to find to link here, so maybe that’s urban legend).  I know I’ve heard of people correcting stuttering problems with rhymes, though obviously that’s nothing to do with throat muscle spasms.  Using the Google on combinations of “rhyme,” “therapy” and “brain” turn up a lot of interesting results. My friend Matt offers this fun time sucker.  I managed a score of 21.209 seconds before I decided I’d wasted enough company time.  I did it with my eyes closed, guided solely by The Force. Showing up at two different links, the photo of the news anchor reporting on a rape suspect is hard not to laugh at.  The source isn’t mentioned, so it may be fictional. The Dog Who Loved to Suck on Toads - A short story of a dog who becomes hooked on hallucinogenic toads.  The fact that the dog’s name is Lady makes me think there’s a funny sequel to Lady and the Tramp to be written. Fantasy art by Jacek Yerka.  Mostly rooms and landscapes, no naked ladies that I saw, so SFW. Handbags that look like movie monsters - I expected this to be stupid, but they really do look like the monsters, and I don’t think it’s on purpose. How to build a hidden bookshelf door - If you click through the link in the P.S. at the bottom you see that the whole thing rolls on castors so the hinges don’t hold any weight.  I’d expect castors to make a mess of the floor, but the basic idea makes sense. A Look at the Numbers: How the Rich Get Richer - It doesn’t actually explain “how,” it just lists a lot of stats to demonstrate that the rich are richer.  I recognize that for a lot of people, the whole point of America is for the chance to make as much money as possible, so these stats don’t get me too upset.  They’re still pretty impressive though. MediaFire - Free unlimited uploads and downloads and bandwidth.  What else is interesting is that when you search for it in Technorati you also get links to files people have uploaded so it works like a blunt filesharing service.  NOTE:  Of course, it’s a bad idea to download anything when you don’t know the source, so be careful if you use this Technorati trick. Speaking of file sharing with warnings,  “Now, given that AllOfMP3 is of questionable legality in the first place, using MusicForMe is undoubtedly all kinds of illegal, not to mention of entirely unknown origin and infested with who knows what, so under no circumstances do I recommend that you download it from this link.” 33 writers. 5 designers. 6-word science fiction.  Of course, this is based on the famous Hemmingway six word story, which really is a damn good story. Robert Scoble meets with a representative from Zune to give us an extensive look at the new portable media player.  (I’m doing research for a possible purchase as the upcoming winter commute season approaches.)

  56. Zune « Ajit Monteiro Says:

    […] I found an interesting video today of Scoble interviewing the project manager of Zune. Its worth noting the way he handled references to their main competitor, the iPod, in a very respectful way. […]

  57. C Says:

    That dude doesn’t seem to involved in the project, he just seems to know the basics and he seems to know how to dodge questions. ex. “we can look into it blah blah blah”, “optimizing for common users blah blah blah”
    And their box looks almost exactly like the iPod one

  58. Stewtopia » Scoble on the Zune Says:

    […] After watching Scoble’s Zune video yesterday, I wasn’t sure how I felt about the Zune, but I did know one thing for sure, the Zune pm lacked something… I know. It was enthusiasm. Man… I know Scoble isn’t MTV, but Microsoft, try sending the guy that makes me wanna buy this thing. Oy. […]

  59. Some Guy Says:

    Zune is already over. It’s fading into memory just like that “Origami” abortion a couple of months ago.

    Polish up your resumes, guys. Once Ballmer has to face the shareholders at the edge of this crater, he’ll want to get you all out of his sight as fast as he can.

  60. Zune needs podcast functionality « Global Nomad101 Says:

    […] Of course this is grossly unfair, one should never underestimate Microsoft dilligence on their business innovation. With Zune not yet on the shelves, Zune Market Place (the equivalent of iTunes store) we should not be pre-judging this excellent product. Microsoft has never been good at delivering a finished product to market first time, Zune Market Place is a critical part of the customer product experience. The ease of downloads for all digital entertainment, the ease of using already catologued personal content, the pleasure and seamlessness of the entertainment experience all stack up to create the finished product. Scobleizer offers the best insight into Zunes, check out his video. […]

  63. Friday Says:

    Is it just me or does the Zune guy really seem unfriendly and nervous? Dude, a little smiling doesn’t hurt. Next time they should let somebody with an better attitude do the interview.

  64. Friday Says:

    The comment that I just made was even before I had finished watching the whole thing. Now that I’ve seen it completely I have to say:

    Never let that Zune guy get in front of another video camera again. He comes of as extremely annoyed through-out the whole video.

    About Zune itself. The audio sharing and display size seem to be some pretty nice USPs. I’m going to check it out.

  65. Znatok Says:

    It’s interesting if Radio will work when you use NON Zune headphones?
    Headphone wires usually works as antenna. On the video they also looks kinda thick.

  66. Zune Says:

    Will zune beat ipod?

  67. Josiah Says:

    I really like the Zune, it looks like it’s going to be an awesome device, can’t wait to get my hands on one.

    That said, this interview was, in my nut so humble opinion, horrible.

    A good interview candidate is a guy who worked on designing and/or implementing some of the great software or hardware in this little device. Someone who has poured a couple of years into getting this device ready for the public and is really passionate about it. Not some boring marketing type.
    Example: Only a marketing guy would call the use of a standard headphone jack a “feature” - come on. And I would have preferred someone who would have answered that question (About the Zune’s headphones) something like “Well, we tried to put the best headphones we could in here, and we think most people will find them to be pretty good. Now, obviously if you’re a real audiophile you can get some third-party high end headphones and they’ll work just fine, but the included ones should work great for the average customer.” INSTEAD we have a guy who uses more marketing words in his speech then there are in most textbooks on the subject. (Not even BUZZWORDS for crying out loud, but things like “product” - “scenario” - etc. Blech!)

    So, this has really run overly long for a comment, but does anyone else agree with me? Interviews about new ideas or products need to be with someone who is passionate about that idea or product, not some guy fresh out of school with a BS in marketing who kind of memorized the press-release from the MegaCorp that released the product or came up with the idea.

    My inflated 2 cents.

  68. Josiah Says:

    Ha, spellcheck would be nice.

    “NOT so humble opinion”

  69. J T Says:

    The Microsoft guy seemed ok in my eyes, Robert was overexicted and that annoyed the hell out of me - and propably the MS guy, that’s why he looked kinda uncomfortable.

    And Robert doesn’t seemed to have had any questions on a paper; just seemed to ask the questions that pop-ed in his head

  70. Robert Scoble Says:

    JT: I don’t write down questions, you’re right.

    Hey, I was excited. I was finally gonna get answers to why the Zune was so cool. I got answers, for sure.

    I’ve interviewed 700 people in the past three years. Most are pretty darn comfortable. Most interviewees actually key in on my excitement and notch it up a little themselves.

  71. Kris Tuttle Says:

    Good introduction to the Zune device. Much better than reading a brief article in the NYT even by Mossberg.

    The sharing feature could be a major plus. I can imagine people sharing playlists with friends and using these devices in a more social (rather than the iPod anti-social) context.

    Despite the greatness of Apple and the iPod there is a huge MS community that would buy a decent mobile entertainment device from them. At a minimum I expect MS to be able to stem the flood of Windows users going with Apple for music.

    It’s going to be interesting to watch.

  85. Neopoleon : Losing touch with reality? Says:

    […] The Zune team already gave you something - they gave you free content. You took that content and turned it into a video on your site, which translates into viewers, which translates into ad revenue, which translates into your job and income. They don’t owe you a device on top of it, and especially not if your plan is to talk trash about it. […]

    CAn you not put Songs you have on Itunes on your Zune? you have to rebuy all of those songs? how unfair is that! (if that’s really true) NEED AN ANSWER IMMEDIATLY!

    […] I watched a video on scobleshow some time back on in which Matt Jubelirer, Product Manager for the Zune project shows the cool features of Zune and whats coming next. Good one to watch. […]

  88. Zune Disappoints - Buy MSFT? » Says:

    […] I’m sure you’ve already heard about the Zune.  If not, just check the link to learn more than you ever cared about this gadget, or watch Scoble’s video over on Podtech.  Short version – its Microsoft’s answer to the iPod.  It was released early this week amidst much fanfare, but has so far received less than positive commentary in the media.

  89. Ralph Says:

    I´m not too impressed by the Zune but it´s interesting to see MS in the field. Until I have one in my hands I can´t pass final judgement. What I do hate is the Zune´s publicity. When MS tries to be hip/cool/trendy it´s like watching an old person trying to play young… if ya know what I mean. I think that´s why they have placed this (boring)young PR guy in that position… cos he´s young! Shame then that he doesn´t convey any enthusiasm. I found some ad spoof pics on Flikr today and this one kind of sums it up.

  92. Items: О важности стандартизации и силе привычки Says:

    […] Пример уже не из моей жизни, но я о нём наслышан. Итак. iPod и Zune. Уже догадались к чему клоню? Раньше все пользовались продуктом Apple, у которого есть колесо (пусть и сенсорное но всё равно колесо), которое можно крутить. И вот Microsoft выпускает Zune. Счастливый обладатель нового девайса открывает заветную коробку, достаёт плеер, видит круглый контрол и что пытается с ним сделать? Правильно! Покрутить. А оказывается что это всего лишь кнопки, которые сделаны в форме кольца совсем не для этого. Скажете придумал? Нет. Вот вам информация из первых рук: ревью Zune от Scoble  и подкаст на Все говорят одно и то же: после iPod все ожидают сенсорное кольцо :-) […]

    […] Robert you know I love you, but you need to learn to leave something on the cutting room floor.  A non-linear editor should have been high on your list of things to by when Podtech got its $5.5 million.  Zune is a great product, but it doesn’t come with a manual because YOU DON’T NEED 40 MINUTES TO KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT IT.  […]

    It really seems like the Zune is picking up in popularity. It’s nice that there’s a good quality alternative to the iPod now.
