Over two years ago my grandfather and I decided the time was right to welcome my grandmother into the wondrous world of the 21st Century with a Zune 80 she could call her very own. True it was self serving, I had reached the end of my rope with burning CDs, and the thought that I may never hear those two dreaded letters again, clouded my judgment, for I had forgotten one thing. My grandmother it seems, goes through electronics like dental floss.

Picture0008 Sadly I wasn’t able to snag pictures of the poor device (a Zune 80 in red), however this PhotoFriday let us mourn the fallen soldier of connected entertainment as it were our own. What’s more sad then this? Ah yeah, now she wants a ZuneHD.
