That’s just great. Little wonder the Zune was stillborn.
And as far as the Zune is concerned, better to pull out sooner than lose a whole lot more later. And I’m not just talking about revenues; I’m talking about reputation.
Compared to the iPhone and the iPod touch, the Zune sucks, and everyone knows it. I don’t care how many testimonials I read from so-called Zune owners. The fact that the Zune owns aroud 3-4% of the market versus 70% market share for the iPod should be enough suggestive evidence to quiet the squawkers. But it isn’t. So be it.
The Zune is so late to the game that Microsoft’s own music download store is hobbled by DRM restrictions, something Apple has recently persuaded the record companies to drop. This is the same DRM that every Kool-Aid drinking, anti-Apple freak complained about.
So, my question to all you misguided Microsoft miscreants is this: How do you justify Microsoft’s DRM-straddled music store?
Please. Don’t even answer. I’m so tired of Microsoft apologists, continually posting love letters about failed products. “I love Vista! It’s the best OS I’ve ever used!” Yeah. That worked out well. Even the CEO/Chief Priest of the Church at which you worship told you it was a failure, and you continued to kneel down in submission. You people should be living in the Middle East, where unfounded beliefs are taken as fact, and misguided behavior is taken as the norm.
