    During the past motnh or so, Amazon has offered 4 items at special low price deals on items like portable DVD Players, and XBOX 360s, for over 60% off(For example, 200 dollars off the 360 core system for 1000 units)

    I was checkign out what the good values were, and to my horror i saw the
    30G Zune for 90 buckeroos for 1,000 units

    So far, its winning the vote :(

    I find this kind of funny since aren't they already losing money off their machines?

    heres the link if anyone wants to try and make the zune lose the vote

    that's real bad. it's not even a month! remember. last thanksgiving, MS Xbox 360 wa sold at $100. so I am not surprised. actually, MS product like them are very cheaper after few months. I've never seen any apple product went liek that. so here we can judge which company's value is much more higher. zune is already fallen. if you go to eBay, there are already a lot of used zunes on sale. too bad. 1 millions by June, 2007? yeah, if the price is like that, MS will easily get a goal soon. :p

    I actually consider to get one of those if it will set by $90. sort of experiment, abuse zune for nothing. :p

    For crissake, this is the way MS has always done business! Would they spend $500 million to take a cash stream away from Apple? In a heartbeat! I doubt if they give a tinker's damn about the Zune. They want to cripple Apple.

    I'll take the Elmo for 90, and they can keep that pile of junk.

    I voted for the grill too. C'mon... it's five bucks!

    I can see why Zune might be leading, though, since it's the biggest drop in price (in actual dollar amount, not percentage) -- so it seems like a great deal. Of course, even if it was $5 like the grill, I still wouldn't but it. And it's not just because I have a Mac which it doesn't work on. I wouldn't buy it for a friend with a PC either. I'd be too embarrassed.

    not only was the grill 5 bucks, but you can cook 10 burgers at once; I think it might be smaller than a Zune, too :D

    So MS has loads of Amazon accounts, well congratulations MS.:rolleyes:

    PS It's Amazon who looses the cash on this on not MS.

    I would buy a 30GB Zune for under $100, brown even.

    Load it up and look for people to squirt :D

    The grill has a 10 burger capacity and is not restricted by 3 servings over 3 days. Welcome to the social!

    The Zune is still winning the vote..

    In other Zune-Amazon Related News, the Zune has
    LOWERED IT'S PRICE!! to an astounding $229.95 with free shipping (8% off). I haven't decided if this is good or bad yet, i think it's good, since i think it;s showing that Microsoft knows that the Zune isn't selli ng well competing at the same price as the 30G iPod, but some might go for the option of it for 230, though i don't know why anyone would..
