Steve Jobs on the "iPod of reading"

Steve Jobs has something to say about electronic readers, exemplified by the Kindle, but probably likely also his view on the Sony Reader. Gizmodo reports:

I love Steve Jobs. Why? Because when he speaks, he doesn't deal with details or nuance--everything is a sweeping proclamation. I like that. His take on Amazon Kindle, for instance, makes it pretty clear Apple won't be making the actual "iPod of reading":

"It doesn't matter how good or bad the product is, the fact is that people don't read anymore... The whole conception is flawed at the top because people don't read anymore."
I sure hope he is completely wrong...
