No, Microsoft, pink does not make the Zune cool

Pink and orange prototypes of lame-o media player handed out as gifts.

Engadget

Engadget is reporting that pink and orange Zunes were handed out to some of the folks who helped out with the (tepid) launch. But the tech blog is speculating that these may see wider release in the not-so-distant future.

I'm not going to write anymore on this subject, except to say that I think Mike Yamamoto wants one to go with his pink Razr (there you go, Mike, for making fun of my appreciation of penguins this morning). "Pink Zune" jokes kind of write themselves.
