Zune is dead ...again!

Summary:It's dead Jim ... again!

Zune was dead. Then it came back to life. Now it's dead again.

Last week Microsoft updated the Zune support page to add that it would no longer be building or selling any more Zune hardware and that it would instead focus on Windows Phone.

Makes sense. right?

But then Microsoft comes out with a statement saying that the statement was a mistake, and the note was pulled.

OK ...

But now the 'Zune is dead' page is back up again.

Is Zune dead now? Well, to be honest I think it's been dead for a long time, it's just that Microsoft hasn't been willing to admit it.

Interestingly, some 59% of you think that Zune didn't deserve to die.
