RealZune.com - - - would have been GREAT to get....
did an NP'er get it ??
Tbh, comingzune.com really does not look like a MS Site, as on the whois look up has nothing to do with MS even the DNS is not for Microsoft.
I did a full article over here http://zuneinfo.com/24/uncategorized/digging-into-comingzunecom/
Maybe ask this guy:
Link is broken?
Ok try the main site. This site is also regged at godaddy...hmmm
The guy claims he works for microsoft.
Good blog. About as good as the other zune blogs.
While extremely difficult to believe (mostly because they have never used Godaddy.com) it’s almost certainly our friends from Redmond.
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.
i have 2 available zune names (not registered) PM me
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?
Found it...looks like it was a green rabbit for the Origen - Xbox 360:
scroll down to see what the site used to have on it (I just checked - only has a tree now and forwards to Xbox site.)
Every day i seem to be and more skeptical on that zuneinsider blog and the comingzune site...
IMHO they are just fakes and done by same person, as comignzune.com was first talked about on the comingzune.com blog.
I have talked about it over here:
And we are talking about this more in the ZuneInfo forums:
Feel free to come over and have your 2 cents on the topic.
It's probably a coincidence, but my site has had a few visits from Micr*soft the last couple of days since listing zunetime.
how can you tell that?
Web stats/unique IP.
maybe poor pick of a name or there just targeting US,,, what happens over seas is it??

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.
Jack Spurr is MS regular so-called domain registrant...
Read into that what you will
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.
alot of misspellings
Ah ha! So... it was YOU!
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:
Ya know, I asked 'bout webrings and if they were a good marketing tool. Never got an answer... anyone??
Dang! I just thought of that one too and it's gone! Ala... Zoom Zoom Zoom...
