Default President-Elect Obama A Zune User?

http://www.citypaper.net/blogs/clog...dio-with-obama/

"Barack Obama is a Zune user. He was spotted in Philadelphia yesterday, working out week with his Zune player. Obama was in Philadephia [sic] to speak to a gathering of governors from 49 states. (Bill Richardson of New Mexico - soon to be Obama’s Commerce Secretary - did not attend.) A witness from the gym reports: “[He] walked majestically across the gym floor in his track pants and sweat shirt. I did a double take, and soon after that, looked around the gym to see if anyone else knew he was here. Nobody seemed to notice. 'But he hopped on the machine next to me and broke a mean sweat while reading a copy of USA Today and listening to his Zune.'"

(Probably should be a Zune within a Presidential Seal, but my Photoshop abilities aren't that strong.)

We knew the DNC gave out Zunes back at the convention in August, but who knew the candidate kept one for himself? According to Neal Santos at Philadelphia's City Paper, the US president-elect worked out at the gym a short distance from our intrepid reporter, brandishing a USA Today and a Zune. Of course, as Santos points out in a follow-up, given that Obama's been spotted with a Mac laptop before (the Zune desktop software doesn't yet run on Mac), the Zune in question could be an aide's. But hey, for now we're claiming the president-elect one of our own.

I was a staunch Hillary supporter, but this is awesome! I'm excited for the future of this country...

Here's hoping for a POTUS Zune Card. I'd love to friend the President

I wonder if his Zune's name is Zune One

Even if he is a Mac user I would suspect he also is a PC user just due to the demands of his job. Between his wife and 2 kids I'm sure they have more than one computer in the house. Since the DNC gave them out I wouldn't be surprised if it were his.

Not only would he have a PC David, but I would also like to point out a little thing called 'Bootcamp'. You can boot Windows right up on an Apple, and basically have all of your problems solved. 'Bootcamp' is just one example, there are a few really good Virtual programs that could allow this type of thing to happen.

Bootcamp solves no problems for me...I have no problems that would require it But yes, that is a possibility as well.

Good news: you guys were mentioned in a WSJ blog post.

Bad news: it appears that the Zune theory was debunked.

Win, loss, both?

Hey, the only way it was ever going to get confirmed or denied was by people making some noise about it so at least that much came of it. As a Mac user it makes sense he's not the Zune user but obviously someone around him uses it and lent him one for the gym that day. I'd guess its more likely one of the secret service guys.

Zune users cling to any shred of propagation
