I have been invited to discuss the Zune HD and iPod Touch on the BlogTalkRadio Showdown show this Sunday at 7PM EST. Check it out if you can.
All about ZuneMAX.com
OK, our site has been down or messed up for over a month now. It’s not exactly all my fault although I could have probably done a little more to get it back up sooner. We had a list of issues but most of them were from spammers and scammers trying to hack our Zune site. The hackers installed an IRC bouncer and were using it to ping our topsite script and replay spam to all the wonderful folks online.
Our web host took a dump on me at the same time. I have been with the same dedicated hosting plan for over 4 years before all these troubles came up. It was the last straw as far as I was concerned and I had to find anew hosting company for this sie and all of my other sites also. It was a real hassle but with some help from a good web hosting comparison site at Web Hosting Choice and their handy newsletter I was able to find a new host and move on rather quickly.
We’re back up and running and our new hosting company has some cool new tools I can play with to add things to the site.
I am rebuilding the ZuneMAX database and getting rid of some of the unused features of our site. During the process you may notice things chaing rapidly and errors popping up as I modify the new template and create a more fluid look for the new site.
I will be looking for some writing partners who want to write about their Zune players. If you own a Zune and would like to discuss a position writing for ZuneMAX.com please contact me for more details.
Zune MAX is all about the Zune and music and we’ve been featuring tons of new artists for our Zune fans around the world. Someone suggested to me I take a look at a hot new artist in one Mr. Chris Brown. According to IdolMe.com Chris Brown has been working in the music industry since the young age of 16 and he is a multi talented young man. He not only was the first male solo artist to have a hit single debut at the top of the Billboard charts but he also produces work for other top artists in the music industry such as Bow Wow and Jermaine Dupri.
Chris has been busy on a nationwide tour that has sold millions tickets and brought him to major cities across America and around the world to perform his top hits like “Run It”, â€œGimme That, Yoâ€ (Excuse Me Miss), and of course his latest smash hit â€œSay Goodbyeâ€. Chris is a straight up lady killer and very popular with the girls. His music is featured just about all over the place and you find Chris Brown mp3 downloads and Chris Brown ringtones online for your cell phone.
It looks like Chris Brown is a serious artist with a bright future in the music industry and someone to watch out for.
Chris is being compared to some of the top artists in the industry including Usher, Tevin Campbell and even Michael Jackson. Chris is very well known for his own unique style and flavor and a booming sound that has made him a rising international hip hop star.
Today is the last day of 2006 and wow has it been a wild year for me and this website. When I first found out about the Zune I had no idea how much it would change the rest of my year. Since July 11th I have been here at this site almost every day working with some of the best people online to build the greatest Zune community we can and I believe we have done an incredible job in such a short time.
Our site is alive and active with loads of very talented Zune fans. We have musicians and artists of all mediums present with a desire to share their work with Zune users everywhere. Our dedicated community leaders are busy each day helping out new Zune users with tips and suggestions on working with the Zune and more. Without them our site would be a mess and my thanks goes out to them and everyone who has helped out over these past few months.
The response to Zune by the press has been mixed but Zune users and members of our forum are sure happy with their Zune players and so am I. MAX may have some issues to work out yet but I feel confident Microsoft has heard the message and the fixes for Zune troubles are on the way.
I’m most excited about what we’ll see from the Zune community in 2007 as we respond to our new media players with more personalization and insight into our Zune experiences. I love the creative output we’ve seen in things like the Zune Wallpaper contests and the selection of new music for Zune fans is great. I think my favorite part of my first mp3 player has been the incredible amount and diversity of new music Zune fans have shared with me and my Zune.
I look forward to having some serious fun this year with MAX here at ZuneMAX.com and I invite you all to do the same. Please enjoy our site and share your thoughts on the Zune and more with your new friends at the Social.

Welcome to the first ZuneMAX.com Zunecast Episode #1. It’s not a podcast but you iPod fans can still watch it. You may call it a Videocast although it’s not an Audiocast and Netcast sounds so 90′s I won’t bother so I produced my first Zunecast instead. It’s more a tutorial that I’m not totally happy with it but it’s done and I’m looking forward to trying it again.
My first try at Zunecasting is a continuation of my Meet MAX article and I spend a few minutes running through the Zune firmware for you. You can tell I had some notes to keep me on track because the first two times I tried to do it on the fly and I kept messing it up. I realized if I was going to properly cover all of it I would have to have notes to keep me focused and still I messed it up. I barely go over the FM tuner and there is one mistake in the video. We’ll see if anyone catches it.
Since it’s my first Zunecast I am trying a few new tools with our blog software. You have the choice of watching the Google Video you see here now or you can use the player located at the top of this blog post to watch the movie now or you can download the entire file for playback later.
