  1. I understand your rabid anti-apple fanboy hate, but unless you’re holding a very large position on MSFT stock, there is no, absolutely no reason to take a posting about a brown zune to heart.

  2. @Michael: I’ll assume you didn’t actually look at the picture or read our little snippet about it…because your comment just looks silly here.

    Our “little biased blog” wasn’t being “biased” about anything. We were pointing out the humor that MSN was displaying an article (regardless of who wrote it) about how ugly their products is. That is called “humor”…laugh a little sometime. It’s fun.

  3. The humor is there if you look for it. You have to remember, however, that you could probably get a similar answer from a lot of people at Microsoft. I think that this shows (if anything) that Microsoft is able to be critical of itself. Never-the-less, the irony/humor is pretty lame since it is indeed an independent article. It isn’t as if it is coming from Microsoft PR.

    Gentleman, its humor. I’m sure you’ve heard of it? Yes I made the point that an affiliate wrote the content. Regardless, MSN ran the story on their own site. That’s hilarious.

    Take some time off from the blue nowhere and enjoy some sunshine.

    #8 you are a complete idiot. What part of the appleblog lead you to think that this was a location for objective, unbiased, reportage?
    Secondly, the actual picture makes those points clear (the posting – less so, the comment above you… more so).

    I understand your rabid anti-apple fanboy hate, but unless you’re holding a very large position on MSFT stock, there is no, absolutely no reason to take a posting about a brown zune to heart.

    You must have better things to worry about.
    You must.

  6. @Kroyooz: Well of course. But you’re missing the point. This whole little “snippet” is simply pointing out that it’s pretty funny that, regardless of the fact that PC World actually wrote the article, MSN (a Microsoft Company) is display a list of the ugliest products and the very first one is a Microsoft product.

    Let’s keep things in perspective here folks. This isn’t a “Microsoft sucks, Apple rulez” article at all.

  7. I’m a girl and I actually like the brown Zune. I look for function and not looks. Brown is a gender neutral color. You can put nice decals or stickers on it if your really self conscious about the product.

    Ugly, as everyone knows in this society, does not sell. Imagine pitching a TV series or movie where everyone was UGLY. Would you buy an UGLY PC? Et cetera …Pretty sells, UGLY does not. When you go out cruising for girls are you looking for UGLY girls? I don’t think so. (-:
