    so they're saying that, hypothetically of course, the best way to make a digital music player would be to have it be just a digital music player, not a phone, not an address book, not a web surfing gadget, not a....

    hmm. Wonder where they came up with this idea?

    I dont know if it will work, the reason I love my cellphone is because it does so much but doesnt force me to use the things I dont want to use. Same with the ipod, I never user the callendar function, but its there, its not in my face.

    People dont want clutter in their pockets, but they also want that single device to be easy to use while providing all the features they happen to want and need... consumers are difficult! :p

    Some of the designs in that article actually look pretty cool.

    Where was his turtle neck?

    Now, if they were going to reveal the devices running on Apple software, that may be an acceptable comment to make, but as that's unlikely, I think he should make a public apology for using a variant of Insanely X without a patent.
