0 Because Compromise Has a Bad Aftertaste

For a while now, Starbucks has been playing the silent martyr. They’ve been promoting Fair Trade, Conservation International, and Product (Red) for years without really taking advantage of the good PR that those kind of practices can produce. These days, possibly one of the world’s most well-known coffee providers are starting a new, simple ad campaign that will promote not only the value of their products, but also their own values.

It’s not flashy, and it’s not complex. Starbucks is just telling their story. A series of images based on slogans based on burlap sacks tells a between-the-lines story of a company that cares about the quality of their product and about the morals behind the company. There’s no blood and guts, just catchy taglines that will (hopefully) let the consumer know that their product has, and will continue, to be in good moral standing. You’re sure to see these slogans on store windows on EVERY corner near you soon.

    Have you considered adding some differing opinions to the article? I think it might enhance everyone’s understanding.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
