Too Many Zune Rumors Starting to Annoy Me

So within the past two years, I've heard tons of different rumors about what Microsoft is planning on doing with the Zune franchise. They started it up a while ago, as an MP3 player and Zune Marketplace. It's not amazingly famous, nor is it beating Apple's iPod in competition, but Zunes are high-quality devices and are getting a little popular.

And then the rumors started. Zune 2. Zune Phone. Zune Smartphone. Zune LOTS OF PHONES. Zune Project "Pink". Zune Touch. Zune HD. ZuneX. And most recently "xYz".

There are obviously many more, but here's a picture summary of the basic rumors:


Listen. I love my Zune. I've had it for almost a year now. It's terrific. It's never failed me once. When "Z2K" happened, my Zune was fine. I've never been happier with an MP3 player before.

But seriously, the rumors are starting to get out of hand.

Let me emphesize this. There will NEVER, EVER, EVER, be a "Zune Phone". Microsoft AREADY HAS A MOBILE PHONE BRAND. They wouldn't be so stupid as to force two brands to compete with each other over phones.

The Zune / Xbox hybrid "xYz" is a bit more plausible. There has yet to be a Microsoft handheld device to compete with Sony's PSP or the Nintendo DS, and Zune devices can stream to the Xbox already.

However, I'd like to say one important thing: Microsoft, can you PLEASE tell us what you're planning on doing? I'm sick of hearing the same rumors countless times without them actually leading to anything solid.

I highly doubt that the xYz will come into existence. The Zune phone, maybe. It could be a way to convince more people to switch to Windows Mobile.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

Hey guys,

I'm here online for the children of Haiti.

I'm doing my part for a non-profit group that devotes themselves to
creating oppurtunities for the kids in haiti. If anyone here wants to give money then do so here:

[url=http://universallearningcentre.org]Donate to Haiti[/url] or Help Haiti

They give children in Haiti a positive learning environment.

Please check them out, they're legit.

Any help would be great

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
