Oh no, Microsoft Zune goes Silent!

OMG! Did your Zune lock up in the event that some are labeling “Z2K”. The model affected was the Zune 30, which includes a 30-gigabyte hard drive and was first released back in November 2006, and it is still being sold. (I am sure there is a recall order on it now.)

Why did this happen? Well according to the people over at Microsoft they forgot to compensate for leap years when writing the driver software!  So their solution is to just wait until January 1st and it should start working again.

Here is the post from the Official Zune Support Forum:

"By tomorrow you should allow the battery to fully run out of power before the unit can restart successfully then simply ensure that your device is recharged, then turn it back on."



Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet team up for Revolutionary Road

Kate Winslet is wonderful as always as she plays April Wheeler in this heartwarming film about a couple in the 1950’s.  Leo plays Frank Wheeler, Kate’s hubby.

Frank is stuck in a well-paying but boring office job, and April is a housewife still mourning the demise of her longed for acting career.

I enjoyed this movie, though it does get long winded and a bit boring at parts.
