Zune Becomes Slang for Wannabe. Ouch.

The Zune, Microsoft’s supposed iPod killer, has just been dealt another blow by Advertising Age’s Media Guy Simon Dumenco. In his glossary of must-know media terminology for 2007:

ZUNE: Microsoft’s new music player. Also [slang]: a poseur; a wannabe. Usage: “Dude, you look like such a Zune in that shirt.”

    Agree Zune is doomed. Microsoft have the means to keep it afloat, but will never be more than fringe. You see they forgot the first immutable law of marketing. First to market first in mind.

    Althought IPOD wasn’t the first MP3 it was the first one with simple user interface. Game over.

    Zune isnt worth a damn bc it has no mp3 play back, all they did was try to copy ipod, but the zune can never be better than apple ipod, the zune is even thicker than the ipod, i mean microsoft needs to take the zune and stick it where the sun dont shine, ya feel me???
