In the spirit of spreading correct information around the Internet (a novel concept, we know), we present updates on two recent stories that have lit up the blogosphere:
1. As it turned out, that free Zune promotion we posted about earlier was for MSN, not the Zune. Yes, that’s right: not only does MSN think the Zune will entice people to start their Web-browsing experience at their beleaguered portal’s home page, they think comment spam is the way to get the word out. Isn’t corporate
blindness synergy great?
2. The real zeitgeist-defining item in that story on iPod-related junk that we ran yesterday is the Chat Divas Barbie doll, which “can talk on its cellphone in one hand and sing karaoke with a microphone in the other.” No word on whether it comes with its attendant 20 paparazzi.
