Microsoft Zune Hell

Published by Brian under mp3, politics, music

Judging by the way they’re burning customers, I guess music vendors, such as MSN Music and iTunes, think we’re used to replacing entire music collections every few years. Microsoft is shutting down MSN Music in favor of Real Rhapsody links from the new Zune player. So what, you ask? So, music you bought from MSN Music won’t play on the new Zune and there ain’t no way you’re gonna get from here (your existing collection of music files) to there (the Zune player you’re lusting after. As a contributor to bOING bOING says, “You were a sucker if you bought MSN Music tracks. You’re a masochist if you buy Zune tracks.”
