Technology News: "An HD What Again?"
Posted: Tuesday April 14th, 2009 by

An "anonymous tipster" has pointed Endgadget at some new marketing images for Microsoft's Zune. Endgadget has expressed a "sneaking suspicion" that the "new Zune" will have an HD display.

Gu has been party to a few "anonymous tips" in its day. But thus far none of them have actually been anonymous. The tipster clearly identifies themselves and proves their position in the company. So the "anonymous" tip is really just leaked information for the purposes of generating hype. Now, I'm not saying that's for sure what has happened here. But big companies, when they want to hide something, seem to do a really good job of actually hiding it. Honest to goodness leaks/tips are exceptionally rare.

The problem with trying to generate hype for a Zune product however is... who the hell actually has one? Okay, so suggesting that no one owns a Zune is about as mean as suggesting that no one remembers what a newspaper is. It's okay, I think I'm trying to make some kind of point. I suspect that this is where people will begin to regale us with stories of their awesome Zune. Please note: I don't have a problem with this. I just don't know anyone that actually owns one.
