Quick question, where can I get free cigar boxes?

author

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

How can they suck? They lack lips.

Zunes are quiet innovative when it comes to sucking :P

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.

zunes still suck

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)
