    "Microsoft also plans to add something that looks like the version of OS X on the iPhone, but much worse."

    Does anyone else sense an air of desperation?

    Actually, to be honest, they got there before Apple.

    I can see what they were trying to do by announcing it immediately after the iPhone. That being said, it was still a really stupid call. At best, no one hears anything about it because it's totally overshadowed by Apple's announcement. At worst, it looks like a pathetic "oh man, I hope this iPhone announcement is really long so we can come up with something to say our product will have in 18 months." I mean, I guess it's good to say that you're looking to improve the Zune, but announcing something this lame this close to the iPhone announcement when it's not going to be available for 1.5 years is just silly.

    I thought Archos would have been in there somewhere. That was *almost* my first MP3 player - before I knew better! :p

    But what they have on smartphones is kind of crap, hence the copying bit. Don't know about the Origami though.
