While most of the Free World has already written off the Microsoft Zune as being way too little, way too late, that didn't stop the Redmond behemoth from desperately trying to make its Little DAP That Couldn't appear to be "cool" at U Penn. The company sponsored a Sigma Alpha Epsilon frat party last weekend, where all the cool kids used a Zune for the first (and last?) time. Microsoft was trying to bolster its image on campus by sponsoring some silly beer drinking cabal's get together. Who knows, maybe Microsoft will start sponsoring other totally hip events and functions, like the AARP Annual Dance Contest or a Daughters of the American Revolution baby shower.
Hey, Microsoft, I'm thinking of throwing tupperware party next month. Let me know if you're interested.
Too soon for Zune? [Daily Pennsylvanian]
