Although I think that title pretty much sums up what I’m thinking right now, I’d like to elaborate. Many a Zune user this past two weeks have worked themselves up into a tizzy because their ZuneHDs neither have a Software Development Kit, released by Zune nor are they compatible with Microsoft’s forthcoming XNA 4.0 development framework. While I agree on some sentimental level that those of you who agree with them may have a point I’m sorry to say you are totally and completely off base.
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.
Those who follow the ZuneSpring on my personal Twitter will know that tomorrow starts a big week for us. First at Mobile World Conference Microsoft is preparing for what could very well be the keynote to make or break Steve Ballmer’s career as well as change the face of both Windows Mobile & Zune alike. Also I’ll be heading to Microsoft’s Redmond Campus for what surely will be one of the most exciting experiences of my life, the MVP Summit. Because of both of these event’s I’ll be taking the week off from my full time job. You know what that means, an entire week to bring ZuneSpring up to where it should be without interference from the real world. Tell me what new areas you would like to see, or where no frontiers you would like us to venture into. I will not stop until this site is the best it can possibly be and that involves each and every person who reads, and enjoys what we do here.
