All five Zune users are furious.

On New Year's Eve, every 30 gig Microsoft Zune in the world crashed simultaneously. The reason? The firmware couldn't handle a year longer than 365 days, and 2008 was the first leap year since Zune's release.

The proposed fix: Drain the battery, recharge, and don't turn it on until New Year's Day.

I knew we would eventually see the effects of Y2K. The fear mongers were right! All that money testing... everything... and Zune slipped through the cracks.

It was designed pre-2000 right?
