Microsoft: fuel cell rechargers for giveaways, not for Zunes

Well, it was a sweet dream while it lasted. Crushing our brief hopes of a fuel cell recharger for upcoming Zune models, a Microsoft spokesperson has come forward to clarify that the "small amount" of branded units purchased from Medis Technologies will be used as promotional giveaways at an upcoming event, and will not be joining the social any time soon. In fact, the company has no plans to sell fuel cell products at all, which pretty much rules out that hydrogen-powered laser mouse we've been fantasizing about. Oh well, we've been waiting for these magical power sources to get commercialized for so many years now, we can surely hold out a lot longer than this.
