Default APRIL FOOL'S DAY: Zune iOS App Spotted

<p>One of my favorite pastime is combing through Flickr and Photobucket looking for interesting pictures. &nbsp;Every once in a while you come across a gem. &nbsp;These two for instance were pretty interesting finds... &nbsp;(Hint, lower left corner).</p><p><img height="500" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1301628588.usr117680.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="373" /></p><p>We all knew this was inevitable. &nbsp;iTunes runs on Windows so why shouldn't Zune run on iOS? &nbsp;Besides, it's not like there aren't other iOS app developed by Microsoft. &nbsp;In fact, this is the seventh iOS app by Microsoft. &nbsp;The others are: Bing, OneNote, Live Messenger, Tag Reader, WonderWall and Sea Dragon.</p><p>One more picture after the break.<MORE /></p><p><img height="500" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1301628303.usr117680.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="373" /></p>

Default I need this!

I'm a long time Zune Pass user. Just a couple of weeks ago, I was switched to an iPhone for work. I keep thinking.... "There's gotta be a way to stream Zune Pass music to this device!"

Where did these photos come from?

Thumbs up Good one!

Finally I receive some good news on this day! A WPT scoop in a longstanding tradition.

When I first glanced at this headline, my brain registered "Zune Spotted" and I thought to myself, "Wow! Oh wait, isn't it April Fool's Day?" because I've never actually seen a Zune anywhere. Then I re-read the headline.

A Zune iOS app would make sense, as there are many other music services on the App Store already. Except MS would just hate the new subscription rule (30% cut).

I actually have an original Brown Zune 30. It's still used every once in a while on longer road trips. Wifi is always off now. In the time I've had it, never found anyone to squirt to.

Notice how I contributed to the joke by talking about how badly I want Zune on my new iPhone. I knew it all along!
