Apple chief executive Steve Jobs has rubbished claims that Microsofts Zune media player will pose a serious threat to the iPods market dominance. Jobs dismissed the wireless music sharing technology that Microsoft is touting as a major selling point of Zune, which is due to ship in the US by Christmas.
"It takes forever. By the time youve gone through all that, the girls got up and left," Jobs told Newsweek. "Youre much better off taking one of your earbuds out and putting it in her ear. Then youre connected with about two feet of headphone cable."
