Sigh. It was first-gen hardware. The batteries in these devices only last so long. Yes still, I was in complete denial of the inevitable. It was bound to happen one day, but I didn't want to think about it.
My Zune, my wonderful Zune, has died.
Getting the battery replaced is financially silly when you can buy a new 120GB Zune for just over twice the price of a battery service plus shipping. And that new 120GB Zune is well out of my price range.
I'm going to have to resign myself to the fact that I'll have to go Zune-less, at least until I get a fat work contract (ha!) and can justify spending the money. Until then, I guess I can use my PSP for my portable music...but it's just not the same. I want to be able to carry my ENTIRE LIBRARY with me everywhere I go.
So...the big question is: Who wants to buy me a new Zune?
Long live my Zune.
