CNN on Zune: "Why dont they get some decent design people..."
Category : mac and the internet
Quite funny, with NYT's Andrew Ross Sorkin trying to be objective. There is some attempt at a build up, asking of the Microsoft Zune, "Can it kill the iPod?"
"The real cool thing is that it has wifi."
Then they give up trying and start dismanting...
"No its just Zune to Zune."
"Hey Miles, can you beam me your song?"
iPod Shuffle flourished
"Right, see now that's the, that's the thing that's a lot sexier than this, right?"
Presenter pins iPod on lapel
"Isn't that neat? Oh my God!"
...Interviewer mumbles, "why don't they get some decent design people that make things look better?"
Thanks to Kevin. That was so funny!
In an unrelated point, video quality was "wow!"
Meanwhile, AppleInsider apparently reported, "No Zune support in Vista." Sigh, they are serving it up on a platter. See also ZDNet.
