Zune Stories From the Field
"Today I took my Zune (and my two daughters and one of their friends) with me on a snowboarding trip to Mount Baker - our local ski hill and, incidentally, home of the world's record for most snowfall in a season (95 feet, no less). Over the course of the day, I put the Zune through a field test of its battery performance, temperature tolerance, and its ability to withstand an unintentional bounce or two."
How would Zune hold up with hours of continual use, boarding down your favorite slops in freezing temperatures, and taking the brunt of some bone-jarring spills? Pretty well, apparently. Check out this post on Zunerama for the complete story. Personally, my Zune much prefers sitting beside the nice cozy fireplace while I'm out hitting the slopes. (Read: I'm too worried about concentrating on staying off my butt to even consider listening to any tunes while I'm on the slopes.)
