Ramblings of a Nutbar

You’ll probably regret this.

Zune2K? Blown up zunes, anyone?

When I read this, I thought it was a hoax, but it’s serious as a heart attack.

At 2AM this morning (Apparently in each time zone) The 30GB version of Microsoft’s Zune, their iPod wannabe, simply stopped working. No, I’m not joking, and yes, this is real. Check it out – Microsoft’s official zune support page goes into great detail on it. Many of the zune support boards are being flooded with posts that their zune quit working.

 

And in a dark, unlit corner of Apple world headquarters, Steve Jobs lets out a long, sinister laugh.

My guess? Microsoft programmed the Zunes to go out of service when the world ends in in 2012, but a pogrammer accidentally wound back the software by 3 years.

Quick update: As of this moment, this is CNN.com’s number 1 story of the day.

When Smart Phones Go Stupid

So yeah, my so-called “Smart” phone flipped out on me, and ate two cards out of my solitaire deck. Maybe the phone is smart, and it knows I have important stuff to do and needed to try and stop me. Well, the joke’s on you, smartphone! Instead of leaving to be productive, I put the video of the error on YouTube, and now I’m blogging about it! Ha!
