I learnt via TUAW that Microsoft’s Zune was launched today. Now over at CNN, there’s a news video showing a New York Times reviewer on the right explaining how the Zune works. Before he could finish though, the CNN newscaster on the left whips out her tiny iPod Shuffle. In a flash, the gig was over. She looked so please with herself, especially when she exclaimed, “Why would I ever buy that [referring to Zune]?”
will did Microsoft fail?
1. It’s bulky. (and it doesn’t do email?)
2. It’s butt ugly. (WTF is it with swamp brown?)
3. It’s overly complicated (Whopee! A built-in FM radio!)
Watch the CNN video for yourself and have a laugh…
