Here’s an interesting move: Microsoft, just days after the release of their brand new lineup of Zune personal media players, has announced that they will be replacing the head of their Zune division. The company has appointed Rick Thompson as the corporate VP in charge of Zune business operations. Thompson will report directly to J. Allard, the “mastermind” behind the entire Zune department. The move comes on the heels of the company’s new Zune launch, leading us to question whether they are happy with the direction that the new generation of Zunes are headed. Allard will still have final say over general Zune operations, but new blood is never a bad thing, right?
