Microsoft Zune 30 GB Go Haywire
Microsoft’s response to the iPod has been the center of many, many jokes. Earlier today, the Microsoft Zune 30 GB had a major outage. People are calling the Zune blanking out today as “Zune2K9″ according to Gizmodo. A report at Gizmodo states that:
Apparently, around 2:00 AM today, the Zune models either reset, or were already off. Upon when turning on, the thing loads up and… freezes with a full loading bar (as pictured above). I thought my brother was the only one with it, but then it happened to my Zune. Then I checked out the forums and it seems everyone with a 30GB HDD model has had this happen to them
Microsoft’s official response to the situation is:
We are aware that customers with the Zune 30GB are experiencing issues with their Zune device. We are actively working now to isolate the issue and develop a solution to address it. We will keep customers informed on next steps via the support page on zune.net (zune.net/support).
Stayed tuned to see what happens going forward.This article was written by Amit Chowdhry. You can follow me at @amitchowdhry or on Google+ at +AmitChowdhry
