“Was he inebriated? Do you even know anyone who owns a Zune?”

That was Steve Jobs’ reply when told by a CNBC reporter that Robbie Bach (head of Microsoft’s division in charge of Windows Mobile, Zune etc.) had told the same reporter that he was “particularly optimistic about the new Zune … that it was now a worthy alternative to Apple’s iPod.”
The above comes from Just Another Mobile Monday.
As it happens, we had a discussion at work on Friday lunchtime and this question came up. "Do you know anyone who owns an iPhone in the UK?" Not one person did.
Wired also posted the following quote from Steve last week- "Amazon's Kindle e-book reader will fail, Steve Jobs says, because Americans simply don't read. From The New York Times:
“It doesn’t matter how good or bad the product is, the fact is that people don’t read anymore,” he said. “Forty percent of the people in the U.S. read one book or less last year. The whole conception is flawed at the top because people don’t read anymore.”
Google's Android platform gets a similar drubbing. Also, there were 100 prototype MacBook Air designs prior to the final model. 100! Jonathan Ive deserves a long vacation.
"Some of the competitors’ machines are so flimsy, [Jobs] said, they require a fifth or even sixth [rubber] pad to keep from sagging."
Mr Jobs is really starting to annoy me. Great products, but seriously overpriced and the arrogance of Apple makes Microsoft looks like the good guys at times, and that is not easy...

Dann noch die Werbung auf der Apple Page mit ihrem Leopard vs. Vista: http://www.apple.com/getamac/ads/ <- und das obwohl ich von (sehr überzeugten) Apple Usern gehört habe, dass Leopard wohl noch seeehr viele Bugs hat! (wenn man sich die Videos anschauen will, braucht man Quick Time: ACHTUNG: nicht nur weiter klicken sondern immer alle Häckchen entfernen!... sonst müllt ihr euren PC voll)
