Zune gloom: hundreds of players failing simultaneously
Maybe you're a fan of Zune MP3 players because you're a PC at heart, or maybe you just want to stick it to the evil Apple empire. Either way, we'd be interested to hear what's going on with your Zune player today, specifically if it's a 30 GB Zune.
Gizmodo is reporting that Zunes everywhere have failed near-simultaneously: the players are freezing, failing to reboot, non-responsive etc. There are literally hundreds of reports from owners in online forums. Such a synchronised failing would suggest a specific version of operating firmware contained undetected errors. Such problems aren't uncommon - a recent update crippled Sky+ boxes across the country.
No doubt Microsoft engineers are currently running around like headless chickens trying to come up with a solution; if you're currently experiencing similar problems, let us know. Then go buy an iPod, fool.
