Portable video player and game device Microsoft Zune has everyone all atwitter since the Redmondians officially announced the brand last week, and now sleuths at Mobilewhack found a document posted at the FCC that shows what is said to be the approval of Zune, where in the document it's called Microsoft Presenter 3000.

A juicy detail: because of the frequency range mentioned in the document, Zune might include WiFi integration, specifically 802.11b. This follows our earlier reports of Microsoft's statement that "seven or eight wireless scenarios" could possibly end up in the upcoming line of players. This current FCC approval could mean that Zune could hit the streets much sooner than anticipated. More as the story unfolds.

Did anyone at Gizmodo HQ even bother to fact check this story? NOT A SINGLE thing in the "mobilewhack" source points to Zune. They saw WiFi and immediately decided it was Zune. If anyone bothered to read the FCC report, they'd see that the manufacturer is a Taiwanese input device firm and that it is all over the web as a pre-order device.

A 5 minute check would have prevented this shameful post. If I were you I'd be careful when copying stuff from third rate blogs like Mobilewhack...
