Look, I know that as a Mac Zealot I'm not exactly neutral here. But have you SEEN the ads for the new zune music player from microsoft? I mean, is there ANYBODY who thinks these ads are cool, or even interesting? I just don't get it.

I understand if microsoft wants to play catch-up with Apple in yet another area. So they made a new music player. zune does have a larger screen than the iPod, but it's the same resolution. Apple sells songs for 99 cents; microsoft sells songs for 79 "microsoft point" which is equal to 99 cents. Cause we're stupid and we think that's cheaper. Black and white are the new Silver for electronics (thanks to Apple's innovative designs), and microsoft offers the zune in those colors. Fine. But then microsoft wanted to shake thinks up a bit and offer a third color. Great! So what exciting color did the come up with?


Come on.

How is it possible that this is one of the most powerful companies on the planet? It's embarrassing.
