Why Did Microsoft Even Bother?

Zunnzo0rI have a minute before leaving for class, so I figured that I could help Microsoft with their Zune marketing campaign. The new media player is so shitty that they could use all the help they can get.

And on a side note, if you see someone with a Zune in the wild… Don’t laugh. Keep all your jokes and hurtful comments inside. I’m sure they feel bad enough about their purchase already.

  1. Yes, the Zune has a bonus in the package: a deep sense of self-loathing, perfect for the budding masochist!

    Here’s my Zune post, which piggybacks on one of John Gruber’s.

  2. I think it had potential. Shitty DRM-plauged WiFi stuff is still better than NO WiFi stuff, right? I dunno. I guess more features just isn’t always better.

    But the whole PlaysForSure trick was inexcusable, so I’m sorta happy it’s failing. All these companies need to realize that DRM makes buying digital music pointless, since your music will disappear in a few years when your hardware dies. So the only option to get music with the same freedom that we had with CDs for decades is to pirate it. Idiots.
