    While extremely difficult to believe (mostly because they have never used Godaddy.com) it’s almost certainly our friends from Redmond.






    Best wishes,

    even that zuneinsider blog does not look real to me, there is no proof he is from MS nor is there any thing really on there that screams out MS like all the other MS blogs I have read.

    As far as the comingzune.com site being an MS site... I don't ever recall MS putting up a crappy little placeholder site prior to any of their product releases...

    As far as the ZuneInsider.com site, who knows. The guy may work for MS, but I highly doubt they'd be hosting any kind of official site on Typepad.com. And if he does work for MS, I can garuantee there is not going to be any "insider" information leaked if he plans to keep his job...

    IMO, it all just looks like people taking advantage of the Zune hype, trying to reel people in by it's current mystery...

    My thoughts on Coming Zune dot com

    Who really knows. Since I posted that I decided that the person(s) are indeed using Domains By Proxy.

    Does anybody know what the bold type is in reference to:

    "Today, the software giant launched a teaser web site, located at www.comingzune.com, that plays a short animation featuring the song "Us" by Regina Spektor and (once again) a white rabbit interacting with two persons. After the animation ends, the site gives you the option to subscribe to the Zune newsletter."

    What other product by microsoft had the white rabbit?

    Why would Microsoft register a domain and use WHOIS Privacy?

    It's probably a coincidence, but my site has had a few visits from Micr*soft the last couple of days since listing zunetime.

    As people know my business works very closely with Microsoft UK and the comingzune site has nothing to do with microsoft or any other name saying they do.. Microsoft advertise from there own web servers only... also they would never go private on a who-is why would they need to?? lol

    Anyways i asked today in reading and they confirmed what i already knew it is someone scamming for hits on there site to potentially sell it as a traffic domain. So do yourselves a favor and forget that site ever existed.

    Darn...I am so damn naive sometimes...I put my email in there...I'm going to be majorally spammed. I thought it was a microsoft site with the disclaimers at the bottom... :( I feel like complaining to microsoft BAH!

    That is the conclusion my research had led me to believe!!

    The interest appears to be very big as I have gotten some 'bandwidth exceeded' messages while bumming around today.

    My Adwords bid is quite low and I am still getting several thousand impressions/day - single keyword.

    Ah ha! So... it was YOU! :laugh:

    I saw Zilla's name in this thread and immediately thought of ZUNEZILLA.com I was going to finish the thread and add "Who the heck thought of.... " and now I know who! ;)

    So, did one of them buy it from you?! :tu:
