Man, you gotta love it when Apple and Microsoft take these little swipes at each other. Rex Sorgatz apparently visited Microsoft's Zune HQ and spotted this plastic "iPod Amnesty Bin" sitting at the entrance, complete with its not-so-subtle message. We're leaning towards the Microsoft stunt end of things (you think they had a "PowerBook Amnesty Bin" outside of J Allard's office?) since if you look closely, you'll notice all the full size iPods look like the same 4G model. Oh, someone also seems to have dropped in a 2G shuffle -- maybe a staffer with access to one of those rumored flash Zunes?
