Happy New Year! Now your Zune doesn't work!
A very nice New Year's gift from the people at Microsoft. Thousands of Zune owners found that their 30 gigabyte players stopped working today, in what appears to be their own version of the "Y2K" problem that have plagued PC's since the begining of the decade.
Users have inundated the troubleshooting forums at Microsoft.com and Zune.com, looking for a relief to their problems
It looks that a software glitch with the internal clock was responsible for this and that it will go away as soon as Jan. 1st. rolls to Jan. 2nd. It advices all users to let the batteries on the player drain completely before restarting them.
To all Zune users; you should have gotten an iPod!
