Ms. Danielle Giving Away A 30GB Microsoft Zune

by Ed Lau on June 10, 2007

After she won the Zune giveaway contest from John Chow in April, Ms. Danielle is giving it right back to one of her lucky readers. I’m a big fan of Danielle’s blog site. Like me, she posts on just about everything, which ranges from her first experiences in golf to hamsters that steal toothbrushes.

Danielle is also a regular reader of this site and one of the top commentators in each of the last three months, topping the list in April. She is, however, slacking slightly this month and is just off the list at the moment.


I actually saw this particular Zune just before it left Vancouver at a regular Dot Com Pho day in the hands of John Chow. We don’t get very many Zunes here in Canada so I thought it was quite an interesting product. However, being the owner of several iPods, if I were to win the contest, I would probably also give it away like the Zune’s previous owners. I find it sort of funny that it will have exchanged hands at least three times before it’s actually used on a regular basis.

I like when things are exchanged from blogger to blogger. It adds to the history! All of us use iPods anyway, so we don’t mind giving this thing away. ;)
