Welcome to the social, indeed …

"Zune is a vehicle to explore new sounds and experiences. With
that in mind, Microsoft pre-loaded each Zune device with a variety of
songs and music videos from hot, new artists as well as some fun films
and images."

Microsoft’s Sept. 28  Zune

Well, I suppose this is one way of improving the Zune user experience.
… A Chicago couple who bought their 12-year-old daughter one of
Microsoft’s new Zune media players for the holidays found that the
device really does come preloaded with "something for everyone." Among
the preloaded music and "fun films and images" on their little girl’s
Zune: an
hour and 44 minute-long video of a "homosexual orgy."
The couple,
who noted that the device’s packaging did appear to have been tampered
with, returned the device to the Chicago-area Wal-Mart where they
purchased it. The store
manager they spoke with blamed the incident on Microsoft
, though
it’s far more likely a Wal-Mart issue. "I’m just totally appalled by the
whole situation," the girl’s mother told Fox.  "What do you tell a
12-year-old child that you have five men having sex with each other?
That’s not a conversation that I want to have."
