I love all things technology. There is something I love more than technology though and that’s the University of Florida. The athletics of course are the most visible thing others see but I am a Gator through and through. I thought of getting the Colorware treatment on my Zune so that I could have mine in Orange & Blue. After Jason’s very mediocre experience, however, that idea went out the window.
There may be a better option for me one day. The Zune team seems interested in providing branded Zunes to schools who are interested. According to Michael Greene, Zune is going to be working with large institutions to brand devices for their own uses. They do present some interesting possibilities of things to do with it. Such as trading flash cards between incoming freshmen. Do they SERIOUSLY think that’s a good idea?
Other, better, ideas include preloading school songs and videos from professors. Those ideas are certainly more appealing. If Florida offered a branded Zune through the bookstore I’d buy one pretty quick and would love if it included songs or better yet, videos. As far as how interesting this is to the general populace? Well, it would be nice if anyone could special order a Zune with a logo on it.
