Holy Toledo! Z2K9!!! Answered

Right, so this is a weird one: we're getting tons of reports—tons—about failing Zune 30s. Apparently, the players began freezing at about midnight last night, becoming totally unresponsive and practically useless.

D:

It's true! My Zune gave me a picture of a battery with a sad face when I turned it on!

GAPS!

"They" speculate that it has something to do with the "leap second" this year.

It's like Y2K all over again! BUT WORSE.

Read the whole thing here, from Gizmodo.

nope i have 2 chinese cheapies (cyber sound m5 and some untitled one) and none of them has a realtime clock and they do their work (cyber : mp3 + mic record / untitled : mp3 + mp4 + camera + mic record + txt file reader + micro sd slot) very well. they are simply built to work and not to be shiny and bloated

Your cons can be improved... goes the same for every OS if you know what you're doing.

improving cons..... oxymoronic

you could add more cons, but you can't improve them, since then they wouldn't be cons at all...

What I meant was, your "cons" can be fixed. For example, lag can be fixed by upgrading RAM or even just shutting some visual effects off.
