New Zune Colours on the Horizon?

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Zune Hardware" @ 10:25 AM

Whenever a new version of the Zune software comes out, adventurous individuals engage in what's called "resource file hacking" - they crack open the Zune software files that contain the images that the Zune software shows when you connect a Zune. This is how we've heard about nearly every new colour for the Zune, and history has repeated itself again when a Zuneboards member discovered these new colours. A blue Zune 120 would be awesome, and I'm surprised how much I like the white ones. What do you think of these colours? I think they should release that 16 GB Citron Zune!

The Green Zune: Finally Deep-Sixed?

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Zune Hardware" @ 09:00 AM

We saw with the Canadian launch that there was no green Zune, and speculation was that it was dropped due to lack-of-popularity reasons. It was still listed at the Zune.net site at the time though, so it seemed like it was only dropped for the Canadian launch. Today I was checking the Zune.net site, and on the Zune 4/8 page, there's no green. So unless this is some sort of temporary removal, it looks like the green Zune is gone for good. Is anyone going to miss it? I have a green Zune 8, and while I never found the colour repulsive, I never exactly warmed to it. Will you miss ol' greenie?

Green Zune Missing in Canada, But Remaining Zunes Have Smaller Screen Bevel?

Ok, so first there's the speculation that the green Zune isn't going to be a part of the Canadian launch - maybe they'll introduce a new colour, like an arctic white - and now there's even more wild speculation: that somehow the versions being launched in Canada have a bigger screen or a smaller bezel. I for one wish this were true, because I think the bezel is way too big on the Flash Zunes, but a bigger screen? No way, no how - Microsoft would not do that, nor do I think they even could do that at this point.



There's only so much speculation a guy can take, so no, I'm not even going to post on this lunacy. ;-)
