No dude, there are lots of people that think like you.
But, there are also millions of others that put looks and brand-name above functionality. The average high-school girl isn't gonna give a darn about the Zune's features and lower price. She wants to be able to say "One sec, i'm gonna go get my IPOD." She'll never say "oh shoot, I forgot my iRiver in class!!!"
