Default Zune HD Stays True To Its Seattle Roots

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/technologybrierdudleysblog/2009657520_microsoft_still_using_seattle.html' target='_blank'>http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/ht...ng_seattle.html</a><br /><br /></div><p>"<em>The upcoming version of the Zune not only maintains the cute "<a href="http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/businesstechnology/2003259576_brier15.html">Hello from Seattle</a>" message, it gives it more prominence, moving the phrase from the back of the case to the</em><em> side.</em>"</p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1250609713.usr495.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>Ever since the first generation Zune, Microsoft has included a three word salute on the back of their music players, "Hello from Seattle." Perhaps as a dig at Apple's "Designed by Apple in California," and also likely a reference to Seattle's famed underground music scene, the sentence pays tribute to Microsoft's Washington state roots. What does it mean that the words have moved from the back of the device to the side in the latest hardware update? Probably nothing, but it does make the text slightly more noticeable on its own.</p>

Nice. Hope it's not too fade-out prone.
