  1. Absolutely freaking hilarious….

    It’s a compliment to Apple because it shows that in the minds of the world if you are selling an MP3 player, it must be an Apple product.

    On the other hand…

    It’s a disservice to Apple to have this POS associated with their brand name.

    I wonder who is gonna contact Amazon to correct this faster… Steve Ballmer or Steve Jobs.

  2. I don’t think that even Steve RDF could do anything to make Zune look good.

    “And here’s what it looks like…its….very brown. We at Apple firmly believe that the future of music players is in wireless transmitting music implanted with viruses.”

  3. Apple’s “Microsoft Zune” is the most innovative music player to come along in years. With it’s built-in Wifi network for sharing music it will revolutionize–what? It’s a typo?! This is not made by Apple?!?

    Oh. Let me start again.

    Microsoft’s “Zune” is yet another another lame attempt by Microsoft to copy Apple. It’s built-in Wifi network is a waste of battery power…
