MS Cracking Up?

Reports of Microsoft Zune screens cracking up are being denied by Microsoft; at least, rumour has it that Zune owners with such problems are having their claims under warranty refused. Apparently the screens crack up when Zunes are left on charge overnight, but Microsoft allegedly claim it’s nothing to do with them.

Speculation is rife that the batteries physically expand and pressure the screens from inside, thus cracking them, but heat could also be an issue here: everyone knows that recharging a device creates heat, and heat can crack some plastics.

On its own, a report such as this could be ignored as an isolated occurrence, perhaps malicious, but when you read this report about a Key Microsoft Zune Exec leaving the company you have to wonder, don’t you?

There’s no smoke without fire…
