ComingZune not by Microsoft?

Several sites have referred to ComingZune.com as being a marketing site by Microsoft. ZuneInfo.com has raised a few points about the domain having been registered at GoDaddy. I thought I'd follow up with some more evidence that it's not likely to be a Microsoft site.


-bash-2.05b$ host comingzune.com

comingzune.com has address 216.182.82.168
comingzune.com mail is handled by 0 mail.adhost.com.
-bash-2.05b$ whois 216.182.82.168

Now what's this adhost.com? Well... according to their website:

Adhost specializes in server colocation, Web site hosting, e-commerce solutions and email marketing at our data center in Seattle.

Well, so it's not hosted at a Microsoft data center. Might it be an MS employee who created and is hosting the site at Adhost? Is it some random schmuck? Can't tell right now. But if you enjoy the site, enjoy it. If not, ignore it.
