Earlier this week news broke that Microsoft was killing the Zune product line. Indeed a support page announcing the discontinuation was posted and the Zune HD was pulled Zune.net and the Microsoft Store. The moves followed a March report that Microsoft was pulling the plug on Zune hardware development.
But in a bizarre twist Microsoft has backpedalled revealing the platform is far from dead. Signs of this could be found in the fact that the Microsoft Zune Support team continued to post to Twitter, throughout the supposed discontinuation, fielding peoples' questions.
