With the imminent arrival of the Zune, the so-called iPod killer from Microsoft, there’s much talk among the consumer market geeks about which will win out, with technical specs and form factor details being bandied around willy-nilly. It all leaves me cold, so thank heavens Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, can be relied upon to bring things back to earth.

Asked about the Zune’s professed ability to create communities and make new friends by sharing songs wirelessly, Jobs sneers: “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 headphones out and put it in her ear.” Thanks for that Steve.
