It can really hurt to get scooped by a competitor.
Smith's claim to fame are three Zune logo tattoos that drew a mention on the Fake Steve Jobs blog. Of course, the 22-year-old Sioux City, Iowa, resident is enthused about the new models:
"I'll buy an 80GB Zune on day one and for Christmas I'll buy my friends 4GB Zunes and my really good friends 8GB Zunes."
But Laptop's golden nugget was the discovery that Smith's getting an Apple logo tattooed on his butt cheek and the Zune tagline, "Hello from Seattle," tattooed on his neck.
Maybe he should be the spokesmodel for the city's "metronatural" tourism campaign.
