Alexas refers to Microsoft's Zune as a copycat

Dan Alexa writes: If Microsoft thinks Zune will defeat the iPod-iTunes duality they are clearly wrong. An MP3 player built at Redmond should not only be the expected iPod-killer but the device that would reshape the face of digital entertainment. And to be honest, Zune is definitely not. A copycat, maybe.

And later:

There is nothing that new and revolutionary that would make Zune’s target population wait in lines at stores like they did with Xbox 360 in November 2005. To me, Zune seems like some sort of iPod built at Redmond. But not at all an iPod killer.

Well, like the Harvard Business Review said in 2004: Plagiarize with pride.
