Steve Jobs: Just put it in her ear

Extracted from SVN.

On the 5th anniversary of the iPod, Steve Jobs talks with Newsweek about the iPod’s cultural impact.

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

ANSWER: 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.

Fantastic answer from Steve Jobs, Microsoft scares the consumer away whilst Apple drags them closer!
