The Zune is now following a long history of specially colored devices benefiting awareness or research of serious diseases. It breaks free from the mold in that Microsoft and Ford (apparently partners from their <a href="http://www.zunethoughts.com/news/show/22757/://://www.jasondunn.com" target="_blank">Sync</a> initiative) are donating the entire price Susan G. Komen for the Cure to fund research and awareness. This is a huge stretch from the typical 5-15% gadget makers typically allot for causes, and is a welcome move. As one commenter at Engadget noted, "with 100% going to the cause its like getting a device for free with your donation."<br /><br />The Zunes are on sale now for $250 (no reason given why it's at the original MSRP).
