Default The Best "Zune Doom" Headlines I've Seen

<p>We all know about the <a href="http://www.zunethoughts.com/news/show/91955/zune-30gb-devices-failing-at-start-of-2009.html" target="_blank">crazy Zune 30 failures going on now</a>, and I've been watching as the headlines come zipping into my inbox via Google News Alert. Yes, this is a "Zunetastrophy" (I had to get it on the fun), but I think it's important to remember it's just a media player - let's keep everything in context. My favourite image so far is the one below, courtesy of this <a href="http://venturebeat.com/2008/12/31/zune-became-self-aware-at-200-am-december-31-2008/" target="_blank">VentureBeat article</a>. I'll point out that while I admire MG Siegler's wit, reading <a href="http://www.parislemon.com/2008/11/zune-from-****-brown-to-irrelevant-in.html" target="_blank">an article like this one</a> confirms that he's about as balanced and fair-minded as a car with two wheels. But let's get on with the fun...</p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1230760958.usr1.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Here are the most entertaining headlines I've seen so far today:</p><ol><li><em>The Zune Screen Of Death</em></li><li><em>Zune 30s all freezing up at once. Ack! Aliens!</em></li><li><em>30GB Zunes hibernating for 2009?</em></li><li><em>Zune gloom: hundreds of players failing simultaneously</em></li><li><em>Y2K returns 9 years later to disable Zunes?</em></li><li><em>30GB Zunes Killing Themselves In Droves</em></li><li><em>30GB Zune apocalypse arrives as devices enter digital coma</em></li><li><em>The Day Zune Music Died</em></li><li><em>Microsoft's Zune in Worldwide Meltdown</em></li><li><em>'Zune 30 Midnight Meltdown' Angers Music Lovers</em></li><li><em>The day the ZUNE stood still</em></li><li><em>Zune 30GB players get an early hangover</em></li><li><em>Microsoft facing 'Red Ring of Zune'?</em></li><li><em>Zune Extinction Event: Microsoft Music Players All Freeze Up at Once</em></li><li><em>Microsoft Scrambling To Thaw Zune Freeze</em></li><li><em>The Zune&rsquo;s New Year&rsquo;s eve of destruction</em></li><li><em>Zune became self-aware at 2:00 AM December 31, 2008</em></li></ol><p>Did I miss any great headlines?</p>
