Zune's fortune - New comment on We Are FAM-ily! - Links+

Sorry, but Zune is going to be crap. What's it going to do that people want and need that the iPod doesn't do already? The only thing anybody is talking about is WiFi--ha! You know it's going to be a pain to set up, it's going to be crippled because MSFT is so DRM-happy, AND YOU'LL HAVE TO PLUG THE DEVICE IN TO CHARGE IT ANYWAY, so what's the point?? (Does anybody really think Microsoft is going to let you "share" your music between your computers or with your friends via WiFi or otherwise? No hire!)

It happened with Sony, it happened with Google, and now it's happening with Apple. Somebody makes a good product that people like, it gets to be popular, and YEARS later Microsoft decides that it wants to be popular too and dumps billions into me-too products that people have no reason to care about. Microsoft is unbelievably awesome at setting itself up for failure. I guess the rich need hobbies...

(Let's judge it when it actually comes out.)
