The last couple of weeks I’ve put everyone through some of the longest Sunday Sitdowns the site has ever seen. We’ve talked about issues that pleased some and pissed off a few so this week I wanted to talk about something not of a serious nature. As it turns out it just wouldn’t be a Sunday Sitdown then would it?
At the turn of the century Microsoft introduced what could only be described as one of the most underrated products of their entire portfolio. Indeed if anything the digital revolution …
This week Microsoft got all official on the ZuneHD’s 64gb variant, allowing you to carry loads more music, video, and television shows then you could on any other flash Zune before. Now I know the more jaded of you will tell me that it’s now time for a 128gb Zune, (see we’ve been doing this little run around for too long), but it’s the rest of you I’m curious about.
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.
