Zune in the Wild—On the Ellen DeGeneres Show

The Zune made an appearance today on the Ellen DeGeneres show. Chi-Lan Lieu of HGTV's I Want That! Tech Toys brought the Zune onto the show. She showed off the working Zune to the audience. Then Ellen decided to give them away ... to the entire audience.

Our own Jason Chen has practically been on his knees begging Microsoft for a review unit, and Microsoft gives them away to an audience full of middle-aged women way before the release date. What's the deal?



Do ya think that was just a LITTLE overhyped? Those women were practically in tears over getting a $300 MP3 player. You'd have thought that Ellen just announced a cure for menopause.
