In a recent interview with Newsweek, Steve Jobs, the Chief Executive of Apple, shared that he is not at all worried about the entry of Microsoft in the digital media player market .Jobs is not particularly impressed or worried about the most significant feature in Microsoft’s Zune player – the Wi-Fi connection that can enable a users to send songs to each other that they can temporarily play for up to three times.
Jobs said that he has seen the demonstrations of the Zune being seen on the internet and he complained that it takes forever. He said that by the time a person has gone through all of the process, the person may have already got up and left. He said that it would be much better to take one of the earbuds and put it in the person’s ear.
The interview actually focused on the market leading iPod itself, which will be celebrating its fifth year anniversary on October 23.
Jobs said that the reason they have succeeded when others could not even dent the market is that Apple does not try to be cool. He said that the company’s aim is to bring out the best products that it can and if it happens to be cool then it is just a great incentive for them.
