In our continuing efforts to poke the hornet's nest, we bring you this quote from Steve Jobs in response to Amazon's new Kindle ebook reader:
"It doesn't matter how good or bad the product is, the fact is that people don't read anymore."
Now, there is some basis for a general decline in readership, at least in the United States, but that's a long way from "people don't read." So, what's really up with Steve? Can't get a decent design for an iPod style e-reader? Can't figure out how to put ebooks in iTunes? Or are we just hatin' on the competition?
What's your take?
