Microsoft registers

More information is slowly leaking out on Microsoft's upcoming Zune portable media player (PMP). ZuneNation is reporting that the domain name was registered back on May 24, 2006. While this initial finding didn't raise many flags, the domain was registered to a man named Jack Spurr. After doing a bit more digging, they found out that Mr. Spurr has previously registered which is an official Microsoft site that provides gadgets for the Windows Vista Sidebar and Windows SideShow.

So we have an idea of what the final product may look like, we’ve received word on its wireless capabilities, we know that Microsoft is chatting with iPod accessory makers and we now know that Microsoft has some sort of "Live"-esque service waiting in the wings for Zune. The only question is how this service may tie into Microsoft’s Live Anywhere or XBOX Live service.

As I said when the first pictures of this thing were revealed, it will not kill the iPod. It lacks that elegant simplicity. The announcement of the name only further backs up what I said earlier, and the price seals the deal.

You're right. Zune is a terrible name because words like Ipod and Athlon just rolled off people's tongues when they were first introduced. end sarcasm.
How do you know what the price is if MS hasn't officially released the information?

Now you see, the price was leaked before I posted, of course.

But it's still cheaper than the Zune, with twice as much storage.
