Opinion: Is Xbox Mus...

In the summer of 2006, I remember seeing something online about Microsoft’s new product — the Zune. It was in a time when I had never owned a portable media player before, when it seemed everyone and… ahem… his or her (mechanics!) mother had one (and I’m not just saying that because...

Get ready for more “Zune is dead” headlines (never mind that Microsoft recently made changes to the Zune Pass — ahem, Zune Music Pass). More sensibly, the blogosphere might cry out that the Zune HD itself is dead. Microsoft sent out a mass email to all of the users in its Zune...
