24406590 story Zune Dead, Then Not Dead, Then Officially Dead 181 Posted by timothy on Tuesday October 04, 2011 @09:40AM from the now-that's-longevity dept. UnknowingFool writes "On Monday Microsoft updated webpages to announce a price drop for the Zune pass subscription, and it removed all references to the Zune hardware. This prompted many to suspect the Zune was dead. A MS spokesman then tweeted that the updates were in error and the Zune was not dead. Then MS later admitted that they will no longer produce hardware but would honor any existing orders. It appears MS has trouble with managing their PR."
