rfc: Honey, We're Expecting... (060721)
« on: August 18, 2006, 08:29:23 PM »

Honey, we're expecting...

...a Zune, that is.

And what's a Zune, you may well ask..?

 We don't exactly know, and as it turns out neither does anyone else who's talking. But something big and bad is coming from Microsoft... the end result of a much-anticipated project code-named Argo.

The mission of Argo is to put all the muscle, brains, and power of Mr. Softy behind the development of a next-generation must-have piece of consumer electronics... the so-called "iPod-killer".

After weeks of whispers, Microsoft released some details today. According to our friends at engadget.com, Microsoft confirmed the upcoming launch of Zune... which from what we can tell is some kind of a music-video-multimedia hardware gadget-software-service.

Hybrids are certainly the rage these days.

All this is enough to get our excitement up, and today we launch Zunerama.com.

Who are we anyway? We are a small team of misfits and shut-ins. Our collective pulse quickens at cool gadgets and interesting technology. This website gives us a way to connect with others out there who share our curiousity for the unknown and passion for the innovative. Our team will gather, collate, twist, and spin the latest developments we can find on Zune.

When there's none of that, we'll theorize, hypothesize, and analyze.

On really slow days we'll probably just make stuff up.

All in the service of you, our gentle readers. So stay tuned, friends. This could get fun.

Warmest regards,

Your loyal staff at Zunerama.com.

Yikes I read that and it's like looking at one of my old high-school yearbook photos.

But you're right, Aaron, that was the very first post made on Zunerama. (You're probably the first person to read it!)

 Cheesy When I first read this I was confused.  I thought he thought we didn't know what a Zune was lol.

At first I thought this was a new post about a 2nd generation Zune that would blow away the current one.  Shocked

Yes.....and yes.!!!

Wow.... Great to have a flashback to where this began.

I've always wondered why someone would get the jumpstart to begin a site on a yet released up and coming thingamajig.

Cool.

Well, he's certainly the first one to reply to it anyway.

i like seeing the origins of sites i have such a deep connection too, i love this site, and now i have an idea of where it began and how it came to be, thanks Ed. for writing it, and thanks Aaron for bringing it back for those of us who were unfortunate enough to not be here from the beginning, way to make us feel like we were. it's much appreciated.
