Happy New Year from Microsoft

Remember Microsoft's supposed Ipod killer from a couple years ago? Yeah the Zune! Well it's back in the news again. I came across this story about every 30Gb Zune crashing on December 31st at 2:00AM. Apparently it has something to do with the latest firmware not being able to support the extra second that was added to the year on New Years Eve.
Whatever it was, it is extremely amusing to me.

Here is another quote from this story:

Late Wednesday, the Redmond, Wash.-based company said the outage affected only the 30-gigabyte Zune models and was caused by a problem with their internal clock. Microsoft expected the problem to clear up as the clocks ticked over to Jan. 1, though users will have to jump through some hoops to get their Zunes back to normal, including letting the batteries die down completely before the devices will restart successfully.

Oh Microsoft, when will you learn.
