Comment on "Microsoft Points System for Zune"
by Dan Price — Sep 29
This is classic Microsoft - they're using their cash-cow monopoly on the PC to eliminate the competition in other markets that they want to move into; by selling a cheaper and/or inferior product at a loss. MS know that they'll more than make it up in licensing deals. They're trying to create yet another platform with the Zune. For Apple, the iPod accessory market is largely irrelevant; but for MS, that's where the money is. Encourage an ecosystem and milk it for all it's worth; It doesn't matter if the core product sucks.
