Why do people want to watch videos on their iPods? Maybe I should rephrase that. Do people really want to watch videos on their iPods? Or is that just what Steve Jobs wants people to want?
I had the same question when I saw that you could buy films and TV programs to watch on the Sony PSP. I just can’t understand that people would want to watch films on a screen that small. I have enough trouble watching video on a plane’s in-flight entertainment system. Anything smaller than that (and both the iPod and the PSP have screens smaller than that) would be a complete waste of time.
But when I asked this question to some people who were raving about watching films on a PSP I was told that they really needed to watch films while they were travelling on the train. I don’t really understand that. Don’t these people read books?
