Experiences and Experiments in Programming

Here we are, December 31, 2008.  Trying to get ready to start a new year, a new adventure, and what happens...technology bites us in the rear!  Or is it more?  Is there more going on here than meets the eye?

If you have a Zune 30Gb then you, no doubt, have felt the sting of Z2k8.  Truly, noone has been spared.  Apparently at 2AM CST this morning technology gremlins mounted a globally coordinated attack.  Zunes all over the globe reset, froze, and became little more than expensive paper weights.  Now many of you may snicker and say "yeah, all 15 of them", but being a victim of this dreaded assault, let me tell you it is very real and affects many people all over the world.

Many theories exist as to why something so devastating could have happened.  Everything from a secret plot by Microsoft to force V1 device owners to upgrade to a newer V2 device, to a software glitch that caused mass neural net failure when trying to decipher the 366th day of the year!  But I believe it is a sign.  A warning that we are becoming too reliant on small audio devices for pleasure.  What happened to the days of sitting around the radio as a family listening to episodes of The Shadow?

I tell you....this could be just the beginning of a global audio device epidemic!  Beware the oncoming silence!
