I have received more than three emails from Zune buyers who are upset about Woot dropping the price of the Zune by $20 one month after it went on sale the first time. After reading every one of these emails, or at least scanning their subject lines, I have some observations and conclusions.[…] Thanks to queste for providing this nice story on Digg.
What other users say about this:
histgyro: Gosh! it was good
zenfilm: I bought an iPhone early and appreciate the $100 refund…Zune doesn’t even constitute a good first try at a media appliance. The Woot joke feels more like it is a jab at Microsoft’s little music box.
aristotle0dude: What’s a Zune? Is that some kind of iPod?
mishsquish: Dugg for the guy’s name. Larry Stalin.
grapesofbaath: Does the Zune at least have a removable battery? I hate that about the iPods. Apple basically knows that rechargeable batteries start dying off after a year and half, and suck big time after two years. And since you can’t replace the battery yourself and have to send it off to Apple for 85 dollars + shipping, they want you to say screw it, I’ll just buy a new one. Smart business, shitty fucking ethics. It’s just the great marketing team Apple has that keeps the fanboys thinking Apple is so consumer-friendly. They are way more anti-competitive with their iPods and Mac hardware than Microsoft is, just on a much smaller scale since they aren’t as pervasive as Windows.
Palaceguard: Apple forced me to spend 3 days in line and pushed my hand with the credit card on the counter to buy the iPhone without flash. Damm you Apple, I’m going to DELL using windows vista
nunofgs: Europe 😦
naonao: I thought they were mocking Microsoft and just being funny but whatever.
junk: Hahaha, love the shark coming out of the water to attack the happy people on the Zune screen.
tavio: I love my zune, and still use it after buying the iphone.
webjoseph: Apparently people did, it’s all sold-out now! It sold old so fast, I didn’t even catch it on my facebook woot watcher.
mariachi: buried as inaccurate – don’t see anything about apple in there at all
scmik1999: did anyone actually buy a zune?
Zeike: Where on earth is he getting gas for $2.69?
