Microsoft has launched, along with its very awesome new Zune players, website, software and overall new outlook on your portable music life, one more reason to want a Zune. The buzz started right before the Zune launched about the Zune Originals. The service allows you to get a Zune with a custom text engraving along with a choice of some very cool artwork to engrave along with it. I’m very seriously considering waiting for the Zune 80 to become available for the service because it looks really sweet. I recommend going over to the website just to play with the options and see the artwork. That may be enough to convince you! You can read Microsoft’s press release after the break.
