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.
