iPod Phone? But Do We Care?


Jobs took pains to point out that the phone would not compete with Apple's popular iPod music player, but should viewed as an iPod accessory. "Wouldn't it be great if you could take a dozen of your favorite songs with you" on a cell phone, Jobs said at the time.

Well, no it would be stupid. Remember how the iPod became successful, even though there were lots of other MP3 players already? That was because those players only held a dozen of your favorite songs. I own an iPod that holds 15,000 songs. It's always full, and it's always in my pocket. Value added to a cell phone by adding space for a dozen MP3s? $0.
