‘Zune Tattoo Guy’ dumps Zune for Apple iPod touch

“Steven Smith, aka, the Zune Tattoo Guy or Mszunefan has abruptly ended his man-love obsession with all things Zune, willfully defecting to the tender Touch of Apple’s iPod after realizing Zune sucks. Smith was no casual Zune zombie, he was the most recognized Zune fanatic in the product’s history along with being a regular Zune Scene forum contributor and a three time tattooed fan boy. In his forum summary he appropriately listed his position as ‘Emperor Zune.’ At one point he investigated changing his legal name to ‘Microsoft Zune’ before waking up to his own unique version of coyote ugly. For Steven Smith, the Zune honeymoon is over,” iPhone Savior reports.

“I spoke to Smith by phone as he waxed on about the failings of Zune, his disappointment in the progress of the product line and his new iPod Touch. ‘The thing that pisses me off is that Microsoft is not advancing the Zune software, it’s obviously the bastard child in Microsoft’s product line,’ said Smith,” iPhone Savior reports.

“Smith gushed over the feel of his new 16GB iPod Touch which he purchased after owning an 80GB iPod Classic for less than 72 hours.’It’s super thin and does some really neat stuff like tilting to go into cover flow,’ Smith said. ‘I also like watching movies on it. I can go anywhere to get iPod accessories, that’s not the case with Zune stuff in Iowa,'” iPhone Savior reports.

[Thanks to MacDailyNews Readers too numerous to mention for the heads up.]

This fat poor bastard’s 15 seconds of fame were 15 seconds too many.

A worse iPod endorser we cannot be bothered to imagine.


  1. Having this guy become a Apple fan is not necessarily a good thing but it sure says alot about Microsoft if one of their MAJOR fans has had enough. No amount of advertising dollars is going to change that

  2. Back off the Iowa jokes, guys. I’m from there and proud of it, though I do happen to live in Chicago now. No one ever guesses me for being from there so good breeding does happen in the state.

  3. You can do a hell of a lot more with an iPod touch than that. It’s an amazing device and now with the App Store no other standalone PMP can match it. He should be blown away, especially coming from a Zune which still doesn’t even have a damn clock.

    And stop breaking Iowa’s balls. After becoming the place that launched Barack Obama’s candidacy, Iowa is cool now.
