Quick question, where can I get free cigar boxes?

Any place that mainly sells cigars will have a bunch of boxes for around a dollar.

Very cool. Even more cool because it houses a zune!

Zunes pwn iPods.

ItsTheHobbs (author)Labot20012009-01-17

No they don't....... zunes suck.

Labot2001 (author)ItsTheHobbs2009-01-18

How can they suck? They lack lips.

cornflaker (author)Labot20012009-01-28

Zunes are quiet innovative when it comes to sucking :P

yanksguy (author)cornflaker2011-11-27

iPods have an suckage app you can download.

Yes, well, the Ipod sucked when it was released, so it'll be a few years until Microsoft is up to speed with new Zunes.

iPod, not Ipod, iPod

zunes still suck

cornflaker (author)Solderguy2009-01-30

Haha I was just joking as I haven't actually had the chance to even see a Zune in real life (I live in Australia) but I have to say thats a pretty bad excuse, I mean why wouldn't you stick to iPods until they become good? :P I have to say though that its cool how you can send songs but microsoft really screwed up with how you can only send samples and the other people have to buy the song. (But thats obviously because of legal issues)

Zunes do not suck, but having owned both I haveto say the iPod does pwn it

Wasagi (author)2010-01-30
