Om Malik on the Zune Announcement

Om Malik on the Zune Announcement:

I love this part:

“Microsoft could argue that Zune would be unique and those others can still do business. But it is also a classic example of why Microsoft is lumbering bureaucratic morass wrapped in a can of conflicts. A modern day version of medieval fiefdoms, perhaps?

Take for instance, Urge which is built into Windows Vista, and is what I guess you could call an almost integrated experience. What happens to consumers when faced with the choice of Zune or Urge!!!

Answer – iPod.

I am also pretty darn sure that Microsoft will make this device too complicated, but that is just my personal guess. Microsoft has a tendency to create one-device-to-solve-it-all solutions, and I am feeling pretty sure that this won’t fly here.
