Steve Jobs is too smart by half. Commenting in a web-exclusive Newsweek article from yesterday:
Question from Newsweek:
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.
There is a certain irony that this is on the MSNBC site. [HT: Reddit]
