Zune Y2K9 Bug

Seems like the good ol'days of the 1999-2000 year change bug.
Back then, nothing serious happened, but it looks like this year thing are going to be different... at least for some Microsoft Zune owners, whose devices have been freezing inexplicably on this last day of the year.

For now, the problem seems to be affecting just the 30Gb model, but we'll know more about it in the upcoming days (or should I say... next year?)

The bug is being called: the Y2K9 bug (inspired in the Y2K bug)

... Some also say this is nothing but a viral marketing campaign - but if it is, I don't think it's such a good idea to divulge that their products freeze at the end of the year - bur, coming from a company that has shown us just that... time and time again... who knows?
(I just noticed the "wow" reaction is the same on both videos! - Maybe Microsoft really is right when they say Windows delivers a "WOW" experience after all! :)
