You can get 30 gigabytes worth of refurbished Zune for just $80 over at Woot.com today. Available in black, white, or brown, the Zune “stores up to 7,500 songs, 25,000 pictures or 100 hours of video (128 Kbps).”
And in typical Woot! fashion, whoever whipped up the product description once again shows that he or she can write circles around just about anyone else on the web, tying in the Zune leapyear shutdown fiasco with the proposed end of the world on December 21st, 2012:
Hey, naysayers. You think this Microsoft Zune 30GB Digital Media Player is a waste of money? You think you can still make jokes about that worldwide Zune shutdown? Well, get this through your thick naysaying skull. The next leap year incident, if it even happens, will happen on the final day of 2012. And you know what? No one will even care. Because we all know that the world is going to end ten days before that.
That’s right, naysayers! The thirteenth b’ak’tun comes to a close on December 21st! Worlds will live! Worlds will die! Nothing will ever be the same! And as you ascend into the belly of the bird shaman as he facilitates our planet’s forward motion across the dimensional plane, your Zune will still be working perfectly!
As a writer and as a fan of metaphysical and ancient mystery literature, were I wearing a hat I would tip it in your general direction, dear Woot! product description specialist. Keep up the good work.
