  1. 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 youre 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.

  25. Doch insgesamt lohnt sich der Kauf, denn die Immobilie steigert ihren Wert und am Ende besitzt der Käufer seine eigene Immobilie als Vermögensanlage.
    So lässt sich dann wiederum Geld mit Immobilien verdienen. Dabei zahlt er
    dann nur noch die Instandhaltungskosten, während der Mieter weiterhin Miete und
    Nebenkosten zahlen muss. Zusammenfassend lohnt sich der
    Kauf einer Immobilie und das Geld in Immobilien investieren,
    wenn die Kreditwürdigkeit gegeben ist und der Fokus auf einer
    langfristigen Planung liegt. Mit einem Kredit oder genügend Eigenkapital lässt
    sich zudem auch eine Wohnung oder ein Haus als Mietobjekt
    kaufen. Wichtig ist hierbei jedoch, dass ein besonderer Fokus auf
    der Objektbewertung liegt. Denn nur wenn die Wohnung oder das
    Haus qualitativ überzeugen können und
    keine groben Mängel aufweisen, lässt sich mit den Immobilien Geld verdienen.
    Das Ziel ist dabei, einen positiven Cash-Flow zu generieren. Dass bedeutet, dass nach Abzug aller
    Kosten und Steuern von der Kaltmiete jeden Monat ein Überschuss
    vorhanden ist.
