Default Rest in Pieces Zune

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/06/04/r-i-p-zune/' target='_blank'>http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/.../04/r-i-p-zune/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Microsoft is sending Zune to the pasture where Microsoft brands go to die. It's the end of the road for a name that once symbolized Microsoft's grand plans to curb Apple's entertainment ambitions. In a flurry of announcements that Microsoft made Monday at the E3 games conference in Los Angeles, Microsoft executives said the company planned to introduce a new music service, Xbox Music, that would run on the Xbox 360 game console, Windows phones and Windows 8 computers. That service will come out sometime in the fall."</em></p><p>Just in case the past six months haven't proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that Microsoft has given up on Zune, the news story linked here drives the point home: Zune as a service is going away, following in the footsteps of the Zune hardware going away.</p><p>Alas, poor Zune, I barely knew ye... :-(</p>
