Steve Jobs Won’t Read This

Not content with bashing the Zune, the arrogant Steve Jobs set his sights on Amazon’s new gadget: The Kindle. A product aimed at being to books what the iPod is to music.

When asked about the Kindle, Steve Jobs said:   “It doesn’t matter how good or bad the product is; the fact is that people don’t read anymore. ”

Sassy.

This New York Times article does a good job of exposing just how ignorant Steve’s statement is. Of interest, is the fact that book publishing is expected to bring in $18 billion this year. That’s about 408 million books that Steve claims no one will read.

Apple has only recently gotten to its current size. Only 6 years ago Mr. Jobs’ company only had a $5 billion profit.

Steve Jobs Is a Dick

I beginning to think that Steve Jobs has been watching too many of his commercials and is becoming just as arrogant as those douche bags portrayed.

In this interview with CNBC, the interviewer mentions to Steve (blow) Jobs how Robbie Bach of Microsoft is beginning to think that the Zune is “now a worthy competitor to Apple’s iPod.”

Rather than having an intelligent discussion with the interviewer on why Robbie may be mistaken, or something of the sort, Steve-O Replies with a snide: “Was he inebriated? Do you even know anyone who owns a Zune?”

The same exact thing could have been said about Apple 10 years ago.

I’m not too keen on my knowledge of the Zune, but doesn’t it have pretty much the same features as the iPod plus: being able to share songs, FM Radio, wireless sync with your computer for the same price?

I suddenly forgot that we live in a free-market economy where competition is encouraged.
