Wal-Mart Zune Comes With Free Porn

It's not the first time, nor the last, that people will find porn on (supposedly) new or recycled consumer electronics. This time it happened to a family in Southside Chicago who purchased Microsoft's Zune from the local Walmart for their 12 year-old daughter.

The daughter, who says the box looked like it had been opened (the charger was missing) discovered that her player contained porn. When confronted, the Walmart store manager initially blamed Microsoft for the pre-load. Later, a Walmart spokesman said they would investigate the matter and provide the couple with a full refund plus a $25 gift card, presumably to pick up a copy of "My Two Daddies" to help the mother explain to her daughter why the "5 men were having sex with each other." Uh, "join the social" Microsoft?

ahh no big deal ;)

Its funny how some people get all... awkward... when around condoms though- i went to get a card for my gf for xmas from shoppers.. and some condoms. my friend comes in with me and as soon as i stop in front of the condoms (he was following) he turns all red and marches straight out of the store looking completely embarrased. jeeze... some people are waaay too uptight! :P

That's not uptight, that's being immature. I have a friend that is like that too, such a child. If me, couple of my friends joke around about anything sex related he acts like a 2 year old about it. Some people just can't handle having fun.

So did the parents actually complain about this or are they mad because nobody told them about the "feature".
If this catches on, Apple is gonna start selling iPorn... preloaded gay porn... that's gotta be a million dollar industry.

Apple already tried with this aproach some time ago, with the iMac for "lovers", check it out http://www.bbspot.com/News/2000/7/new_macs.html

that's another reason why not to shop in Wal-Mart.

I was a witness one time how the customer returned the used electrical toothbrush, and as soon as customer left, the toothbrush was retuned back on the shelf.... yack!

sounds like a scheme someone could use to get themselves a free zune after "return rebate"... just go in with some kid (cousin or something) say it had pr0n in it and bam have your money your zune and merry xmas

This has nothing to do with technology anyway. It's the same as buying a scrap book and finding that someone has made sketches inside. Probably could be avoided by going to a more exclusive store, eh?

WTF? How on earth is its microsoft's fault...unless somebody infected their manufacturing computers with viruses that load pornography on every thing to leave microsofts production factories...

Maybe we'll find pornography in vista too :P:P
