In one of the most bizarre tech glitches of the year, 30GB Zunes everywhere froze up around midnight last night, getting stuck on the loading screen, and becoming totally unresponsive.
Microsoft has issued the following statement regarding the collective Zune failure dubbed Z2K9 by Zune users:
Customers with 30gb Zune devices may experience issues when booting their Zune hardware. We’re aware of the problem and are working to correct it. Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for your patience!
Zune message boards and forums were flooded with hundreds of comments about the problem Wednesday morning.
