12-Year Old Gets Zune with 'Extras'

Posted by Damion Chaplin in "Thoughts Media Off Topic" @ 05:00 PM

"Chanell Martin thought she was being a cool mom when she gave her 12-year old daughter a shiny new Zune for the Holidays. But as it turns out, her daughter's "welcome to the social" was anything but innocent. Apparently the Zune, which Martin purchased at a local Walmart, came with a 1-hour and 44-minute homemade porn video. We're talking guy-on-guy action here. Walmart's response? After blaming MS for the porn, they refunded the Martins and gave them a $25-dollar gift certificate."

All I can say is this: How come my Zune didn't come with pr0n preloaded? All I got was a bunch of lame songs and a sample video, all of which I erased immediately. I would have paid much more for pre-loaded content I was actually interested in. ;-)

Note: the link will take you to a video report (it's office safe, but you might turn the volume down a tad).

Wal-Mart Says $284

Posted by Darius Wey in "Zune Talk" @ 08:10 PM

"Thanks to some vigilant Wal-Mart watching by a friendly tipster, we've got a good idea as to the Zune pricetag, though we're still no closer to a specific launch date. By the time we got to the Zune's product page, the pricing info had been removed, but it can still be spotted in the MP3 player category listing at a lean $284 flat."



Earlier today, Engadget reported that Wal-Mart leaked the not-too-shabby price of $284. Microsoft still hasn't released any official pricing details, so the advice here is that until Microsoft spills the beans, take whatever figure you see with a grain of salt. ;-)
