Zune’s Marketing Director’s Nuts!

From the NY Times:

Jason Reindorp, marketing director for Zune at Microsoft, said Mr. Jobs’s call for unrestricted music sales was “irresponsible, or at the very least naïve,” adding, “It’s like he’s on top of the mountain making pronouncements, while we’re here on the ground working with the industry to make it happen.”

“He’s certainly a master of the obvious,” Mr. Reindorp said, adding that “the stars were already aligning” to loosen the restrictions.

Is it just me or is Jason Reindorp acting like me trying to tell Tim Berners Lee how the web should have been invented? Yeah, I thought so.

    Not surprising to hear someone from MS protecting the status quo. The data that most of what is on iPods is not from a purchased source seems to be escaping everyone. We would not have CDs for music if the DRM monster had come along earlier. Witness what happended to DAT.

    Make a significant hardware chnage in your WinXP box and you find that the XP license is no longer valid and you have to telephone for a new key. No thanks MS, I’ll go the Jobs way.
