Should The Zune Be Shot Out Of A Cannon?

Nov 29th, 2006 | By | Category: iPods & Portable Media Players, Strange reports that Mythbusters co-hosts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage have found a use for Microsoft’s much-ridiculed Zune portable media player.

They’ve assembled a Zune firing air cannon with a muzzle velocity of over 800 MPH.

According to Hyneman “We selected the Mircrsoft Zune as a projectile because it’s what our viewers really wanted to see.”

“We were shocked by the power if the Zune cannon” says Jamie Hyneman. After blasting 3 huge holes in the cinderblock wall of shop the pair called their insurance carrier and relocated the experiment. Reportedly Adam wanted to blast the Zune through car to see if the gas tank might explode but Hyneman’s suggestion of a shot for maximum distance prevailed.

Don’t try this at home, though. Unconfirmed Sources is a satirical journal that pokes fun at political figures and popular culture.
