Star-Picks: Fire up the grill and cook up a little pigskin …

Vacation is over and it’s time to bring out the clipboard and enjoy Friday nights on the sidelines. Year 3 of my tenure begins, and I’m holding onto the reigns a little stronger. This fresh face has some new wrinkles and the body armor needed to dive right into the action. Our weekly Star-Picks kicks off Monday on the blog. I challenged Stang Fan and Goldenarm for picks last year, but I’m unsure if they’re willing to go at it again. I’m sure the 1-9 start from last year won’t be a problem this time around. Later today I’ll have Two Minute drills with Aram Tolegian as we profile the Roosevelt-Alhambra and San Gabriel-Muir games. For now, here are the predictions. Game of the Week votes, anyone?

  • A pretty fine article and great blog. Is there any way I can subscribe to new articles, you know like getting them on email or something like that.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  • Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
