View Full Version : Zune HQ Amnesty Bin for iPods

Jun 8, 2007, 12:22 AM
I just this and not sure if it was posted yet.Here is the link (http://www.tuaw.com/2007/05/24/flickr-find-microsoft-amnesty-bin-for-ipods/) Not sure it it's funny or sad? It kind of looks like someone put an iPod clear case in there. Are they all video iPods? Or 1st gen ones?

"From the entry way at Zune headquarters, we bring you today's Flickr Find: the iPod Amnesty Bin. Yeah sure, it's probably "art" more than it's a real "amnesty bin"--but it says something that upon seeing this picture my heart skipped a beat. It's like seeing adorable puppies in a pound. I instinctively wanted to grab those poor sweet neglected iPods into my arms and give them a proper home. Someone ought to notify the association for the prevention of iPod cruelty.

As one of the posters at the Flickr page points out, this makes you wonder exactly how many of these iPods were bought by the Zune team to seed the bin and make their point--to which I add, I wonder how quickly that bin is emptying as Zune employees wave goodbye for the day."

I find this sad. I'm sure people there didn't "throw their iPod there." Why would you just put it there? You could easily make $100 for your iPod.

And, whats even worse is the fact that Microsoft BOUGHT iPods to put there.
