Default Well, Never Mind.

Some of you may still be in shock after the article posted two days ago, but you shan't be down anymore. Though the site deemed the death of the Zune, @ZuneSupport begs to differ. In this tweet, @ZuneSupport says that the page was created due to an error. Though no more information is present, we can all be a little bit more comfortable that the Zune HD is still pushing through, surprisingly. So, I ask you, Microsoft. When are you going to quit this game and tell us the cold hard truth? Will it die? Will it live? Are you still waiting for plans to develop? Bah.

I think the fact that the page was even MADE is a sign.

And this is why the scaremongering is bull**** and really just shouldn't be posted, it's a waste of time. It always ends up getting contradicted. No need to worry about whether it'll live or die, it will or it won't, and people need to accept that, build a bridge, and get over it. Nothing worth worrying over and getting people into a tizzy about.

If you hadn't followed the lead of the numerous tech sites eager to see the end of the Zune, you wouldn't have to post a hasty retraction either. Give news like that a few days to work itself out. :v

I understand, but I noticed some users still commenting on the old thread, not seeing the posts before that denied the death.

All I can say is that my heart and my head is spinning over all of this. I am very glad that the ZuneHD is still alive but I have to agree with Zufi, and I wish Microsoft would just tell us whats up. I'm not sure how many more time I can hear that the Zune is dead. :|

Seriously, I believe that as long as there are people like me who have regularly gotten HOUSEHOLDS to switch from iCrap to Zune, it will never die. I think the Zune was a test in the touchscreen market, and now that WP7 has a hold, only good things can come. When I saw that post, I ignored it. Even if Zune had really been dead, I have mine, which has survived a fall (2 stories), a fire, and a flood (swimming pool).

today, i listened to some music my friend had on his ipod. i was absolutely astounded at how bad the sound quality was. i figured it was just the one song, but every song was like that, meaning that it was most likely the ipod. when i remembered that the zunehd was discontinued, i almost cried. if they let the zune die they will be killing off the only chance this world has of coming off the apple train. the news that it is not dead is not nearly as shocking as the news that it was dead, but it is a bit of a relief.

I know what you mean. My brother has a iPod and I was listening to something on it and I was thinking why is the sound so crappy.

They pulled the page because they thought that Apple was going to discontinue the shuffle and nano lines.
When Apple didn't, they freaked out.

I'm relieved, but still tense about it. I don't like that they even hinted at it. I wish they would just "leak" some info about the situation

@boobah. You're friend is just downloading some crappy music. The iPod is perfectly capable of producing good sound quality.
