I can understand why….

Zune is selling like ice cubes at an Eskimo reservation… And I can also understand why Bill, is suddenly being modest

When we report on the sayings and sound bites of higher ups at technology companies, we tend to cover them from a negative angle because, as you well know, execs are pretty fond of belittling their opponent’s products. The latest exception to this rule comes from none other than Bill Gates, who recently praised Apple’s iPod, calling it “phenomenal, unbelievable, fantastic” in front of an audience at Stanford University, California. The timing of these words — only a few days after the launch of Zune — would be the most surprising aspect of his speech were it not for Gates’ later musings on Microsoft’s aim with the Zune. According to Gates, the plan with Zune is “more modest” than total domination of the portable media player market, with Gates elaborating that the company wants to “excite people about the concept” of sharing music and video wirelessly through Zune.

The thing is butt ugly, it’s Microsoft, and…. and what, that is all I really have to say. Think Pocket PC version 1! Yep you got the picture.
