Goatberg turns on us

See here. He slams the iPod Touch for having insufficient battery life and no mail client. Money quote: “Apple says the Touch was meant mainly to present typical iPod features, not to replicate the iPhone, and it included the Web browser only so users could get onto Wi-Fi to use the mobile music store in certain places that required a log-in screen. But it seems ridiculous to me to sell a powerful device with Wi-Fi and a huge screen, and to leave out things like an email program, even though you can use Web-based email programs.”

Okay. Look. Factually, he’s correct. But it’s the way he says it. He says we included the browser just so you could use our music store. It’s like he’s trying to say we’re greedy or something. Nothing could be farther from the truth. We just really, really want you to use our music store, because frankly we think it’s great. We think it’s the best one out there. I don’t know. Some people see the dark side of everything. Worst thing is I was just talking to Walt and he didn’t mention any of this. Totally pretended to still be hypnotized. Very sneaky, that Walt. Very sneaky.
