iPods causing a stir on Microsoft campus

Apples iPod is causing a bit of a headache for Microsofts management. They are sending memos to each other speaking of the amount of Microsoft employees who are walking about their Corporate Campus with white headphones in. A nice article all about it at Wired News.

“Some people are a bit concerned about being traitors, not supporting the company,” he said. “They’re a bit stealth about it.”

How “stealth” varies from division to division. At the company’s Macintosh Business Unit, which publishes a wide range of software for the Mac, owning an iPod is almost de rigueur.

But at the Windows Digital Media Group, which is charged with software for portable players and the WMA format, using an iPod is not a good career move.
