Willy Wonka and the iPod Factory

Even the letters-to-the-editor in Wired are better than most articles in other magazines.

Monica Kerschner posted a comment here, which was printed in the July 2008 issue.

Quoteth Monica K, on the topic of Steve Jobs:

" I'm reminded of another CEO [snip]. This gentleman was equally perfectionistic, shrouded his company in secrecy, and was so rude to customers that he allowed one to be turned into a blueberry. Yet he created one of the most popular and profitable products in the world. This other CEO is fictional, but that's about the only difference between the crazes over Willie Wonka's chocolates and Apple's iPod. " (full quote here)

Brilliant. Love it.
