First the latest edition of Microsoft's Zune – but this one with HD radio. Now I'm not going to dismiss this because, while the Zune is nothing special and HD radio is nothing special and together they're nothing special, it's also true that the Zune did not NEED to add HD radio, but it did anyway. And that says something, I suppose.
Probably that Microsoft liked the way the term "HD" rolls off the tongue. Because it's likely to roll off the tongue faster than it will roll out of the Best Buy.
For a while there I thought Mel was going to skip the iPhone phase and go straight to implanting Sirius XM chips in our brains alongside the chips that convince us to pay for content we could otherwise get for free.
Ho hum, all.
