Zune goes for the gold (paint)

Microsoft partners with Seattle boutique for only 10 limited-edition players.


Given its general lag behind the iPod, it makes sense that the Zune would be late in coming to the Gilded Age as well. But if exclusivity is what this limited edition is going for, it will certainly accomplish that--as long as 10 people are willing to buy one.

That's how many of them will be sold in 8GB and 80GB versions, according to MobileWhack, in a partnership between Microsoft and Seattle boutique Goods. No price was given but, if it's more than a few bucks over the usual tag, it'll be too much as far as materials are concerned: It's not real gold.
