Zunelicious

Zunelicious is a blog that covers Microsoft's new Zune MP3 player, and all the news that goes along with it.

Sunday, October 15, 2006

Steve Jobs recently sat down for a Q and A session with Newsweek to talk about how far the iPod has come, and about how he feels about the Microsoft Zune.



Microsoft has announced its new iPod competitor, Zune. It says that this device is all about building communities. Are you worried?


In a word, no. I've seen the demonstrations on the Internet about how you can find another person using a Zune and give them a song they can play three times. It takes forever. By the time you've gone through all that, the girl's got up and left! You're much better off to take one of your earbuds out and put it in her ear. Then you're connected with about two feet of headphone cable.
-Steve Jobs

Just goes to show that not only is Steve a Master Pimp when it comes to seducing women with his tunes, he also has no idea about what Microsoft is trying to do in creating a social aspect with their player. He only sees it as the ability to swap tunes, and he's right, you can just share headphones if that is your sole motivation...but this is not the case with the Zune.

Then again, he may just be dismissing the features his product dosn't have until they're incorporated into the iPod. He's the master when it comes to reality-distortion.
