Microsoft's special Valentine's Day edition of the Zune (Red Zune 80) is apparently more popular than the company expected. The Zune Originals creation that was announced just three weeks ago has already been through one announced product delay, but now it looks like Valentine's Day will come and go with most customers feeling unrequited love.
