Steve Jobs on why the Amazon Kindle doesn’t matter:
Today he had a wide range of observations on the industry, including the Amazon Kindle book reader, which he said would go nowhere largely because Americans have stopped reading.
“It doesn’t matter how good or bad the product is, the fact is that people don’t read anymore,” he said. “Forty percent of the people in the U.S. read one book or less last year. The whole conception is flawed at the top because people don’t read anymore.”
If I weren’t giddy from the prospect of getting a TimeCapsule this summer, or dizzy from watching my phone’s icons jiggle, I might be disappointed in this line of “argument.”
