Zune tries to score with supermodels

Good luck, li'l buddy.


It seems almost pathetic in light of yesterday's gigantic iFest, but Microsoft is still puttering along with its own bits of news about the Zune. A day after its announced price cut, for example, the company continues to make branding partnerships such as one with fashion magazine Nylon for a limited edition of the MP3 player.

Only 1,000 of these specially designed Zunes will be available, according to Engadget, first at the magazine's Fashion Week party next month and then at Urban Outfitter stores. One can't help but see this as the equivalent of a high-school nerd tagging along with the cool kids, but such is life when trying to compete with the iPod.
