$284 for the Zune?

Recent posts on technology, trends, and more from the CNET News Blog.

It might not be the juiciest of Zune spoilers, and a Wal-Mart Stores Web site leak might not have the geeky glamour of shady factory photos taken with a camera phone, but according to Engadget, the big-box retailer's online store already was listing Microsoft's as-yet-unreleased media player for a price of $284.

This might not be final--especially considering the fact that the infamous Wal-Mart smiley face likes to "roll back" the cost of everything by a buck or two--but it's probably pretty close to what the Zune will eventually cost.

An iPod of equivalent capacity (30GB) costs $249.
