"A common complaint levelled at Microsoft’s Zune is the relative scarcity of aftermarket accessories like speaker-docks and charging cables compared to the better-established iPod. Obviously it would’ve been too much to hope that Microsoft and Apple could’ve worked together for the good of the consumer, so we’ll have to rely on enterprising enthusiasts instead. The guys and gals over at Zuney.net have set themselves the goal of not only producing a pin-out diagram for the Zune’s connector, but constructing a Zune to iPod cable too."
While this project is still in its early stages, it is an interesting concept. A small converter cable that would allow you to use iPod accessories with your Zune could be convenient. I would think that such a device would be most beneficial to someone that previously owned an iPod and accessories and is wishing to migrate to a Zune, more so than someone looking to purchase new accessories. Obviously the selection of Zune accessories doesn't come close to that of the iPod, personally I can't think of any particular accessory available for an iPod that I don't have an available option for my Zune. Is there any particular iPod accessory that you would use such a converter for?
