Zune Leap-Year Bug Fixed

We all survived Y2K with minimal impact, right? Who would have guessed that a leap year would mess up some software? And, wouldn't you think that a company such as Microsoft would have forseen a problem?

On December 31st, many 30GB Zune players froze up, because the software didn't account for 2008 having an extra day. Ooops.

How can the glitch be fixed?

The glitch should have been automatically corrected on January 1 when the internal clock figures out the missing day, but some users are still having problems. Owners should fully discharge their players, recharge, and then power it back up.
