If you must buy a Zune, Microsoft's answer to Apple's phenomenal iPod, and let's face it that might be difficult outside the US, how about this stylish model from character design/illustration guru Junichi Tsuneoka, aka Stubborn Sideburn.

The engraved music and video player is available to buy on the official Zune store. While skins are widely available for both the iPod and iPhone, I wonder if Apple would ever offer a range of limited edition decorative designer models.

You can see more of Junichi Tsuneoka's portfolio at the Stubborn Sideburn website.
