Hey guys, starting today I will be replacing Johann Landier as the Editor in Chief of EVE News24. I cannot express how much appreciation I have for all the work Johann’s has done in EN24 and we wish him the best of luck on his future projects.

What’s next?

I will take over Evenews24 and build on the lessons learned throughout these years.

When I founded EN24 along Czech Lion, nobody gave a dime for us. Despite this, the vision shared by us two had a disruptive reception within the EN24 community and it is my goal to bring this mindset back into EN24.

Expect the following:

– A total revamp of our editorial process.
– A shift in content type focus.
– A higher content throughput.
– New avenues for our readers to participate and engage in EN24’s coverage.
– Innovative takes on how EVE Online content is consumed.

I appreciate the support our CCP Games, the advertisers, and our readers have shown throughout these years and speaking on behalf of the EN24 team, our supporters can rest assured the best of EN24 is still yet to come.

If you want to join our team, provide feedback or just hang around with the cool kids, you are always welcome to join our discord:

  1. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  2. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  3. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  4. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  5. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  6. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
