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.
â€œIt doesnâ€™t matter how good or bad the product is, the fact is that people donâ€™t read anymore,â€ he said. â€œForty 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 donâ€™t read anymore.â€
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.”
