Goodbye, Useless – Vol. IV: Zune branding going away

Zune is dead. Long live Xbox. Via Microsoft’s Zune site:

The Zune music and video service has been a key component of Microsoft’s entertainment offering. We’re using our expertise from Zune to launch a brand-new music service under the Xbox Music brand.  When we launch, Xbox Music will bring you a world-class music library, and great new ways to enjoy, share and discover new music. We will release Xbox music on Xbox 360, Windows Phones and Windows 8 PCs and Tablets.

The last remaining vestige of brown MP3 players with squircles is dead.
