We don’t think people have a burning desire to watch video on tiny little screens,” Jobs said earlier this year. But Gates points to the growing phenomenon of kids watching videos during long car trips as proof that there is a market for small screens. “I guess Steve’s kids just listen to Bach and Mozart,” Gates quips. “But mine, they want to watch Finding Nemo. I don’t know who made that, but it’s a really neat movie.” Of course, Gates knows: It was Jobs’s own Pixar Animation Studios
Considering how many cars are getting built in screens in the backs of seat, or fold down models from the top, I think what I’d really like to see is a way to beam content stored on an iPod onto an external screen.
Perhaps wireless firewire will make something like this possible.
