Coming Zune

July 21, 2006

The Zune story is gathering steam.

Microsoft’s Xbox development team has been working on a Portable Music/Video Player for the past few months. The team is managed by Robbie Bach, J Allard and Peter Moore. They know the drill.

The product is called Zune.
It is scheduled to launch during this Holiday season.
BTW, I love the name.

The viral marketing site went live today:
The music is a song called "Us" by Regina Spektor.

Regina Spektor earned her wings in a club called the Sidewalk Cafe in Manhattan’s East Village. The East Village happens to be my favorite neighborhood in New York City.

Here’s a bird’s eye view of the Sidewalk Cafe.

All roads eventually lead to the East Village.

The Rolling Stones did a video in the East Village back in 1981. It was shot on St. Mark’s Place in front of the same building that Led Zeppelin used for their Physical Graffitti album cover.
