Microsoft = ???

Recently Microsoft launched the Zune, a multimedia player that, depending on your allegiances, is either an iPod killer this Christmas or another failed attempt to dethrone Apple's best-selling device.

I don't really care either way. I have an iBook so I'm partial to the iPod; they have the added benefit of looking much better. What is interesting to me is the different advertising that each device has generated. iPod has the much-copied and satirized dancing silhouettes. Microsoft has what appears to be a penis on legs and a really disturbing eye creature, courtesy of Tokyoplastic.

Visit their site to see video of the two together. But not before you eat.

You can watch all the Zune ads here.

failed attempt, i can bet on it.

i was FORCED to use windows media player (my cell phone will only play .wma files) and it sucks rotten eggs. just another example of how user-unfriendly and unnecessarily awkward MS makes everything. truly annoying.
