Steve Jobs Predicted the Zune Back in January 2006

Steve Jobs, in an interview with Newsweek’s Steven Levy back in January, after Levy asked why there still weren’t any serious iPod rivals:

“The problem is, the PC model doesn’t work in the consumer electronics industry, where you’ve got all these companies and some does one thing and another does another thing. It just doesn’t work. What’s going to happen is that Microsoft is going to have to get into the hardware business of making MP3 players. This year. X-player, or whatever.”
