    We love Sam's. Not super-premium sushi, but we are not in the market for $75-100/person, so we are medium-quality sushi people, and Sam's offers very solid and consistent value in that price range. We've been to Sam's about once every 2 months during the last several years and have alwayd gotten good service, good to occasionally very good sushi, pretty good rolls, and an overall good value. It also has a nice neighborhood vibe – we really enjoy our time at Sam's – whenever we go out it is one of the top 3 or 4 places we consider. We're flirting with the idea of trying the new sushi places in the area, but somehow feel like we're cheating on Sam's if we do it. They're going to have to be really good and a great value to get us to switch from Sam's.

    The Red Dragon roll, that's the ticket!

    We used to love Sam's – great for kids, good sushi, went there all the time. But recently they “updated” and now their sushi sucks. Gigantic portions of meager quality fish (sorry, don't want to take three or four bites to finish one piece of sashimi) and suddenly way over-Americanized. Sorry to say it, but we won't be back.

    We love Sams Sushi. Very fresh sushi. Their sushi rolls are unique and tasty. We really like the Cali Crunch, the Ballard Roll and and the Seattle Roll. The raw fish sushi we got had a huge, too big, hunk of raw salmon on rice. That was the only down side. This restaurant is very kid friendly. My son and I love coming here.

    Ate there last in Aug 09. Perhaps 10th time have eaten there in all. I just LOVE sushi and I think this place rates a 9 out of 10. Just really really great sushi.

    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.

  • 39 posadzki panelowe // Nov 2, 2014 at 7:48 am

    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.

(There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    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.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
