Default Steve Kaneko Tackles the Brown Question


"Why brown? Because love it or hate it, people feel something.  Artists and musicians take chances everyday, and so will we.  What few people haven’t seen yet is that we didn’t stop with just brown, we encased it in an “anti-freeze green” double-shot.  There’s nothing like it out there that resembles the warmth and grittiness of certain styles of music.  It is both formal and informal. And it appeals to men and women. It’s a color that’s both everyday and high fashion at the same time"

I guess that's a fair response to Microsoft's choice of brown as the trademark colour of the Zune. I'll admit that it's grown on me. The brown Zune doesn't seem as bad now as it did weeks ago when it was first revealed, though I'm still a sucker for the black Zune with its cool blue trim. Back to the interview, Steve goes on to discuss other aspects of the Zune design. Most of it is focused on the current. I'm actually interested in the future. What does Microsoft have in store for the second-generation Zune and beyond, and even nano-sized Zune devices (assuming they're in the making)?
