I think it needs a feature that when it blue screens that ballmer comes on saying developers will fix it with his mantra (you tube link) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMU0tzLwhbE&search=developers%20developers%20developers).

One would think the Zune project is enough of a lost cause that you wouldn't have to make all of this up. ;)

Go onto video.google.com and search for Steve Ballmer. He is a really embarrasing guy. I hope they blur him out in the next Microsoft conference...

Very true - the man is an ape. Stand him next to Steve or even Bill and it's like a true-life version of those ape to man evolution pictures.

Sweaty, loud, knuckle-dragging, mouth-breather. No wonder Microsoft isn't performing as well as it could be. They need someone inspirational at the helm, Steve is a hissy-fit throwing control freak but he inspires the staff to do their best - I'd rather a creative genius prone to volcanic outbursts than a big bully with no thoughts of his own.

I'd prefer Bill to Ballmer any day - Bill, though not my favourite person at least comes across as someone genuinely affable but Ballmer just looks like he wants to punch someone.

All that sweat too! Any blind idiot would be able to see just what an idiot this guy is. It's like putting Dick & Dom in charge of defense....

Nah - that's not the Microsoft Way™.

"Announced today, the Zune™ is available with an optional input device that plugs into the zPort™ on the base of the device that allows for more efficient use of the player. The zBoard™ has three distinct buttons that allow the user to fully exploit the power of the Microsoft™ Zune™"

Steve jobs is one of the most creative CEOs in the world.

He isn't a fat, sweaty, idotic lunatic.

UGH.

Plus, he has cancer, and he is still calm and healthy.

Yep! Isn't Micro$oft great? I can't wait until the next time they do that thing on the news about the new version of Windows, and Steve Ballmer appears jumping around like the stage is a trampoline...

how about this feature: "is better than ipod"?
i don't think that ipod is revolutionary enough to alow this type of dull humor.

why is apple throwing away features that are found in hacks as ipodlinux? simply, money from thirty parties.
