Leo Laporte slams the Zune
Leo Laporte, formerly of ‘The Screen Savers,” now of G4 Canada’s TechTV, sums it all up.
See this? See this piece of ‘Donkey Dookie?’ You’re gonna remember this as the day the music died. The day that DRM bit the big weenie. I’m Leo LaPorte…this is a Microsoft Zune, and I have to say when I first played with the Zune I thought ‘this is nice!’ It was soft and a little rubbery… beautiful screen, I mean if you put video on here…
But there are a couple of things, I mean, you go ‘okay this is neat,’ first thing you do is go hey… it doesn’t turn.. They’ve got a click wheel that doesn’t turn! Okay, okay, I can dig that. Maybe there’s patents involved.. what else doesn’t it do? It’s got WiFi, well that’s cool. WiFi, you know, you could surf the net, right? WRONG! You could, um, I dunno… download and buy music from Microsoft, right? WRONG! You can’t do ANYTHING with the WiFi. The only thing you can do, is in Steve Ballmer’s immortal words, ‘squirt’ a song outta this into somebody else’s Zune. Hey baby, mind if I squirt your somethin’?
