Microsoft demurs on “iPod Killer” stories

Microsoft finally commented yesterday on the recent iPod Killer reports as Scott M. Fulton, III describes at TG Daily:

In a carefully worded response this morning, a Microsoft spokesperson denied his company’s participation in a demonstration of a portable music device capable of wireless networking to music industry executives, calling a Bloomberg report on Wednesday and a Associated Press report this morning “speculation and rumors.” However, the spokesperson stopped short of denying a demonstration of such a device from someone took place.

“For the stories you are seeing,” the spokesperson wrote TG Daily, “they are based on speculation and rumors and, as such, Microsoft didn’t participate. We don’t have anything to announce at this time.”

Curiouser and curiouser. The BBC has a similar story.
