So, I got tipped off to this bit of news.
Seems as though ol' Microsoft has done yet another rather disastrous thing to its already widely loathed name. Even so, they claim they will only be down for a total of about a day. The fix is supposed to be up at 4am PST, January 1, 2009.
If you have one of these crashed Zunes, let me know. I'm interested in knowing if the fix is actually a go or not.
My wife wonders if the Trusted Computing Group is behind this, testing some form of ultimate control over user's devices. I doubt it, but it would be funny. In any case, here's a logo TCG may want to incorporate to more accurately reflect their ideals.

So, until tomorrow morning...
A Happy New Year from Microsoft.
