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 iPodâ€™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. Iâ€™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 youâ€™ve gone through all that, the girlâ€™s got up and left! Youâ€™re much better off to take one of your earbuds out and put it in her ear. Then youâ€™re connected with about two feet of headphone cable.
Fantastic answer from Steve Jobs, Microsoft scares the consumer away whilst Apple drags them closer!
