Hide Your IPod, Here Comes Bill

Wired News: Hide Your IPod, Here Comes Bill

"The Microsoft manager said he's heard from several executives who dutifully bought Microsoft-powered players, tried them, failed to get them working, and returned them in favor of an iPod."

More choice quotes from the article:

"To the growing frustration and annoyance of Microsoft's management, Apple Computer's iPod is wildly popular among Microsoft's workers."

"Even though it's Microsoft, no one is interested in what we have to offer, even our own employees."

"So concerned is management, owning an iPod at Microsoft is beginning to become impolitic, the manager said. Employees are hiding their iPods by swapping the telltale white headphones for a less conspicuous pair."

Very funny article, but I wonder what the ethics of such behaviour is? But then again, since when did MS worry about ethics!
