Zune Chokes on Leap-year Bug (The Zune 2k bug)!!!

Post by The Aceman » Wed Dec 31, 2008 4:15 pm

For those of you who thought the ipod was better than the Zune, score One for Apple. Pure Comedy if your an ipod user like me. This bug effects all models of the 30GB Zune.

I used to dislike the ipod but it has come a long way. I've been using a mini for almost 4 years and switched to the nano! I can finally enjoy gapless music (number 1 gripe about the older ipods) and a search feature for music. Looks like a microsoft programmer has to go back to school!

eh, no biggy. Apple still hasn't figured out how to make a patch.

Really I wonder what all those patches I've been downloading for years were then...besides of course their not going to be as good at making patches when they don't come out with buggy software in the first place that needs patching. Just because they don't call it a "patch" doesn't mean they just leave bugs in their software, what a ridiculous statement to make. :roll:

patch, as in, a minor correction to the software. Not, patch as in, lets make you download the entire program all over again. That is what I meant. Of course Apple has updates and yes they do leave bugs in their software.

lets get defensive about our OS!

seriously... i use both and they both have issues. neither is perfect and neither is "better" than the other. its a personal choice by the end user based on what they like. me, i like both.... so i have both.
