Hello Newman, Give me back my ZEN interface!comment: 17 | Saturday, January 12 (2008) 11:33AM | Posted by Michael
Newman's Brainstorming Session
Lead engineer: What should the interface look like on our A6 model?
Engineer 2: How about the iPhone?
Lead engineer: Nah! we've already put that on 18 of our players, I want to try something new.
Engineer 3: Zune 80?
Engineer 2: What? The one with the humongous font? Yeah, no thanks.
Engineer 4: Hey guys, we haven't exploited Creative's players yet, how about the ZEN interface?
Engineer 2: I like it! But won't we get in trouble for this?
Lead Engineer: We're in China silly!
Engineer 2: Oh Right. HAHAHAHA
I was just checking out PMP Today's article on Chinese company Newman's new players. They released a bunch of PMP's, but one in particular grabbed my attention. The main menu on their A6 is the very same found on the Creative ZEN. Pretty shameless, no? Even if it's just a copy and paste rendering that won't make it into production, I'm just sick and tired of seeing these companies get away with things like this.
