Steve Jobs in Favor of Un-Protected Earbuds

Technorati blog directory

Steve Jobs was asked if he was worried about the new Microsoft Zune player and its social networking. Here is what he said.

Jobs: In a word, no. I've seen the demonstrations on the Internet about how you can find another person using a Zune and give them a song they can play three times. It takes forever. By the time you've gone through all that, the girl's got up and left! You're much better off to take one of your earbuds out and put it in her ear.

That kind of crass, unprotected earbud action, first documented by the SFX Guys, is fast and raw. But the Zune's wireless, sterile, faceless interaction seems like an easier way to play grab ass with a stranger's playlists without the awkward social interaction we use gadgets to get away from in the first place. [And with less chance for picking up ear-borne infections.] Girls are scary, so I just twiddle my thumbs and listen to music instead of talking to them.

What to get laid? Listen to Steve.
