Melinda Gates on the Zune: That's Loyalty

"Q: Do you own an iPod, which is made by Apple?A: No, I have a Zune.

Q: What if one of your children says, "Mom, I have to have an iPod?"A: I have gotten that argument - "You may have a Zune."

Hah! I love it. That's some dedication to your husband's company. Of course, Zune or iPod, the Gates Foundation is doing some really amazing things to fight poverty and disease in our world. Check this out. There are far more important things in this world than what brand of device you use, and I'm so glad to see the Gates' using their money to improve the world, one bit at a time.

Bill Gates at CES on the Zune

"Dean Takahashi: There wasn’t much mention of Zune today. We keep expecting the next Zune device like the 60-gigabyte version or something else.

Bill Gates: Zune deserves an event of its own. We clearly don’t have any new model. We just introduced the product three months ago. It’s doing well. We knew what we wanted. Just like the first-generation Xbox, we wanted to get on the learning curve. We wanted to get credibility. We wanted to have a reputation of doing something innovative and something that we could upgrade over time because of the large screen and the WiFi. We feel great about Zune. Sometime this year, maybe twice, we’ll have more Zune events where we talk about concrete things. It wouldn’t have made any sense to a talk about it here for a lot of reasons."

This CES interview with Bill Gates covers a myriad of topics, and there are a few Q&A's about the Zune. Gates says Microsoft is still on target to sell 1 million unit by the end of Microsoft's 2005/2006 fiscal year, but they have to sell a lot of units. Does the Zune have the momentum to make it? Perhaps - I think they'll get a boost if they manage to unleash a cool WiFi feature or two!
