The pink version, released earlier this month, is outselling white and brown, according to the company. That makes it second only to black.&quot;</em></p><p><img alt="" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/zt/2007/DFC-pinkzune-052407.jpg" /></p><p>No, I've never been a fan&nbsp;of pink technology, but I do find this news thoroughly unsurprising.&nbsp; After black, I'd say pink is probably the second most popular color of anything.&nbsp; In my opinion, the only reason why MS even released a white Zune (and subsequently why anyone ever bought one) is because the iPod is white.&nbsp; And the only reason why anyone ever bought a white iPod was because for a while they were only available in that color.&nbsp; Microsoft should have released a pink Zune for the very get-go.&nbsp; Now if they would just consider a stainless-steel Zune...&nbsp; ;-)</p>

Mmm. Stainless steel Zune. They could call it the Sub-Zero Zune. :D

I bought a white Zune! :(

I only did it though because my Samsung Blackjack is black and I didn't like the brown Zune. Though if there was a red or orange one available I would have bought one of those instead. :)
