I cant wait! I do however think that B Mays might not be the right person to pitch the Zune HD! I mean, if he does it like the OxyClean commercials then it might cheapen (to the mass demographic aka unaware public) peoples perception of the Zune HD to that of a cheaply made piece of junk sold on an infomercial. The fact is that the character/persona of B Mays will automatically invoke that feeling in a lot of people!

I think with the uphill battle the Zune HD has against the iPod touch, MS should take every precaution to avoid harming or tarnishing the device launch or, most importantly, its (product) public perception!

MS has hired Billy Mays ??? Seriously ??? In that case, I'll never buy any MS product again !!! Can't stand the man. If EVER that was a pitchman who annoyed me, he's it. The only one I can think of who's worse is the stupidly "Smilin' Bob" Enzite man.

I couldn't believe this guy pitched health insurance too. He just doesn't seem to fit that role. Stick to selling orange scented douche that can also clean your carpet and be used as salad dressing Mr. Billy Mays.

Even freakier than that is Shamwow guy after he got his tongue bit off by the hooker here in Miami. I dont know how much tongue was bitten off, but I dont think he will be pitching anything soon.

Dear Tom's Hardware,
I would rather have you not have any news at all than confuse us with fake news that pretty much makes every weekend April Fool's Day.
Love,
me

[citation][nom]falchard[/nom]I never wanted a Zune more.[/citation]
I kinda have... I wanted it more on Thursday. It's not that I don't want it today, I just wanted it more on Thursday. I guess it's because the weather is better today. Hmm, oh well.
Glad I shared that with you, I bet.

Hi,

No, this article is entirely fake. I'm so sorry for the confusion. I am going to try to get the note saying it is fake to be made much more obvious.

I actually agree... This is becoming a serious problem for me. I love fun, but there's a reason everyone else decided it should only be one day.
