Zune Software on Mac OS X via Parallels
I do the samething with XP Pro SP2 with Parallels on my MacBook Pro. Blasphemy, I know, but I like subscription music services and I really like the Zune’s big screen and actually like the navigation better than an iPod. I enjoy downloading and listening to as many tracks as I want for one flat fee, which helps me discover new music. If I like what I hear, then I buy it. My Zune works well with my MacBook Pro with Parallels, and I’m pretty happy with this so far. I can even connect my Zune to my Xbox 360 to playback my music on my home theater speakers and view my photos on my 46″ HDTV. I love my MacBook Pro, but am unsure about buying my music from iTunes at 128 kbps.
Although, the nice integration iTunes has with Apple TV is tempting. I saw Apple TV in person at my local Apple Store, and really find the interface to be very attractive (no surprise for an Apple product). If Apple can offer their iTunes video content (TV shows and movies) in HD, then I will strongly consider switching completely to Apple by getting an iPod and Apple TV.
