**Zune-Bashing Ahead, Villeins**
I was about to go into DTs because I couldn't get into my blog. That's a sad statement on the state of affairs in my world, I realise. Yet there it is.
By now, I'm sure you've heard the wonderful news about the iPhone, yet another gadget I do not need and cannot afford, yet crave badly. Every year the MacWorld keynote really tests my Tenth Commandment stamina, because I always come away coveting something. It's truly sad.
Speaking of sad, let us all take a few moments to mourn the passing of The Zune. Much like a Dickensian character, it was destined from birth for failure. Today was the day that I think we've seen the manner and mode of its death.
People have only so much disposable income--trust me on this. Gadget people want the newest and shiniest possible tool with the most productivity. As of right now, The Zune has been supplanted by the iPhone. Huzzah!
Yes, that is the second time I've written "Huzzah" today. I've been reading this book in my spare time, and it's been colouring my speech. I've started calling my dogs "varlets". It's yet more sadness invading my world.
