What Not to do to a Zune

Pete Brown - 25 January 2008

When I got back to my house from the Silverlight 2.0 TAP event in Redmond last week, it was about 4:00 am (love those airline delays). I dumped most of my stuff in a pile, and went to bed. The next day, I remember asking for my jacket to be washed as it picked up a lot of airplane cooties <g> I used the Zune on all four flights (connections each way) and really enjoyed it. I was also amazed at the battery life I managed to eek out of it - great stuff.

I didn't look for the Zune until today, when my new workshop hearing protection with MP3 player jack arrived from Lee Valley. Well, I forgot to remove my Zune from the inside pocket of my jacket. Needless to say, it didn't survive the washer or dryer sitting in that pocket with a pack of gum and my boarding pass. As fellow AIS'r Frank so succinctly put it: "ouch".
