Zune - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Sometimes, old tech is still good tech. It seems longer than six years ago that I bought a Zune Player with a 30 Gig hard drive for my daughter. She used it for a couple of years, and then became part of the Apple collective. Now, we have all moved on to iPods, iPhones, Android phones, wireless bluetooth speakers, and other new tech. However, when she came in yesterday with the little brown device and its sync cable, and informed me that she found it while cleaning her room, it seemed like a miracle. (Cleaning her room, not finding the Zune.) My initial inclination was to put it in the box of misfit tech that I keep for fun. However, my curiosity got the better of me, and I downloaded the new version of the software, and synced it with my music collection. I was sad to see that Zune was dropped late in 2011. But, I am now listening to Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring on my headphones as I write this. Funny thing. Copland is just as beautiful on the Zune as any other device. Everything old is new again.
