Default Mystery Zune Prize... if you can spot the "easter egg" in the latest app release...

... hint: it isn't an "easter egg" inside any of the apps themselves, it won't get me or my team fired, but it does involve me.

Find it, be the first to post a pic here and I'll reward with some Zune accessory goodness.

Cheers, Dave.

if we dont have a camera can we just tell you in great detail?
edit: does you last name start with a G?
and bte, the shuffle app is slow and buggy. would be nice to still have artist pics in background. Nevermind, the app works great now.

No, Dave McLauchlan is a real musician. These are from a 1997 album.

PS, I've discovered my very own Easter egg in our very own Dave who, as I've discovered knows the sound of the boar, knows his way from the East to the Hill and north of the 49th!

Dave, if you don't get these references, I am very mistaken.

Edit: Oups, I am. If anyone else does though, I'll still be thrilled!

Yes, but if i am not mistaken that is Dave's own album. He used to be a pianist. Resident Pianist at Adelaide Casino to be exact.

DaveMac-MS (aka David McLauchlan) is a real musician, too. In fact, that 1997 album is his.


EDIT: sage427 beat me too it...

North Korea is a playable team in the soccer (Hehe... football) app? PS: I used them to play through the championship... and won.

Edit: Next I shall use Libya. They would probaly beat the players though....
