The iPod turns 5

Ipodnanoredhero Steve Jobs is interviewed in the latest edition of Newsweek by Steven Levy on the occasion of the iPod’s 5th anniversary. There is no doubt that it is a revolutionary product (the new Red iPod Nano is currently on my birthday wishlist hint, hint..) but the quote that made me laugh was Jobs’ response to the question of whether the iPod will lose its “cache because it’s too popular.” According to Jobs “That’s like saying you don’t want to kiss your lover’s lips because everyone has lips.” Gotta love Steve. You’ll never hear Bill Gates talk like that. And speaking of Gates, check out Steve’s take on the upcoming Zune in the complete interview. The guy certainly thinks outside the box.
