Frozen Zune 30GB: Live Webcam


Update: As promised by Microsoft, The Naked Loon’s 30GB Zune successfully booted to the main Zune menu after midnight. Happy New Year, you fabulous little obsolete brick! The ZuneCam will remain online until tomorrow at 12:00 noon.

Final Update: For posterity, the Live 30GB Zune Webcam has been archived as a slideshow below. Relive all the excitement and tension of the great Zune Apocalypse of 2k9 (minus one).

Every 30GB Zune on the planet broke down this morning in a massive worldwide software freeze. Even here at The Naked Loon we were affected. In order to provide continuing, up-to-the-minute coverage of this important worldwide crisis, we are proud to present the live 30GB Zune webcam below.

    I got one of these from my nephew for Christmas, and can anybody tell me this — where do you put the cassette in? I can’t figure this thing out, dang it. I’ve always got the 8-tracks in the closet as a backup, fortunately. Have to take the Granada out for a spin if I want to listen to those, however.

    Oh shoot, I have to go now to set my VCR to tape ‘That 70s show’ and ‘Mash’

    Anybody that can tell me how to to get the tape in this thing, please let me know — really!
