(AP) -- Many of Microsoft's Zune media players that froze up on the last day of 2008 because of a glitch involving their internal clock were functioning properly Thursday as the new year was ushered in, according to the company. However, a few people were still complaining of problems operating the devices.

I'm no Mac fanboy, but it really blows my mind that people still buy Microsoft products, even after years of borderline mediocrity. I have a Vista desktop, and I cannot even list all the problems it has given me. It just drives me nuts. So WHY, why on EARTH anybody would want a Microsoft mp3 player is just beyond my understanding.

Sorry for the rant, but really... I just don't get why people are wasting their money on such a poor product/company.
