What with the Zune hypometer going up as each day pases its only right that Microsoft start marketing the little thing. So what did they do, release some posters maybe, put some fact sheets on the internet, sponsor a chocolate bar. Well they didn't do any of that, instead they took their Zune marketing budget and bought a giant bus and fully kitted it out.&quot;</span><br /><br /><img alt="" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/zt/2006/jason-zunebus.jpg" /><br /><br />Oh man, does this ever bring back memories of the <a target="_blank" href="http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2001/may01/05-10metourpr.mspx">Mobile Experience Tour</a>, where I toured 11 cities across the USA in a <a href="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/zt/2006/jasondunn-mobile-experience-tour.jpg" target="_blank">giant 45 foot-long semi trailer</a>.
