Bugs & Viruses "Judgment day has arrived for owners of 30GB (and only 30GB) Zunes. The music player inexplicably entered a worldwide coma last night, and players are completely non responsive." [Kroc: I wonder if this is anything like the bug that caused Windows 98 to crash after 49 days when the tick-count exceeded 32-bits :P]

Sabatoge?

Does anyone else think this is sabatoge? Why should it only affect 30GB zunes and not others? What particular code could possibly relate the disk size with the date? I can't think of any. Why should any code on a media player execute at a specific date if you have a particular disk size?

Does each size have different firmware? Different internal hardware(other than different SSD or HDD obviously)?
