Microsoft officially kills off the Zune

It's been treading water for quite some time, but Microsoft has today officially terminated its iPod competitor, the Zune. From now on, the Windows Phone will be MS' primary handheld focus. Looks like the company fed us a line of sh*t when it said this wouldn't happen.

That said, Microsoft won't be fully abandoning existing Zune users. Their products will still enjoy full access to Zune services and will continue to be protected under the terms of their warranty. 

Considering the Zune was pretty much dead long before this announcement, it's more like Microsoft has dropped the Weekend At Bernies charade and let its corpse fall flat on the ground, with its bones jutting out of pallid, dried flesh and its bruise-covered face staring lifelessly at a little girl who is now screaming as the concept of her own mortality forces its way into her innocent, vital mind. 

Something like that, anyway.
