Microsoft iPod packaging

Monday 27 February 2006This is more than 17 years old. Be careful.

This video is a parody, but it hits the mark dead on: Microsoft iPod packaging parody. It’s a perfect spoof of the failure to value simplicity. The beauty of it is that you can’t quite identify the point where it becomes absurd, where even a big company full of committees wouldn’t take that step, but by the end, they have clearly sunk the product with their stupidity.

The video is full-screen so that you can see the details.


Wow. That was really, REALLY funny. And very true. Good Lord, the stories that I could tell...
I couldn't imagine it more accurately.
I suspected that this was done inside Microsoft and it turns out that it was.
