Steve Jobs rare intereview
WSJ Online has one rare interview with Steve Jobs held at the second annual D: All Things Digital conference in Carlsbad, Calif.
According to Jobs, Apple has a 70% market share of the legal downloads - which equals to 2% of all the legally sold music in the U.S. He sees it break breaking through 5% in the next 24 months or maybe even sooner.
His main competitor is: piracy. While Jobs doesn't say that prices for iTunes may go down, he is pretty confident that prices won't go up either any time soon.
"We don't want to get into something unless we can invent or control the core technology in it." probably describes best Jobs' visionary strategy. For him, the PDA has no place in it. Neither does portable video: "What's happening is to build in video, some companies are making [these devices] twice as heavy as an iPod and twice the size of an iPod, so they don't fit in your pocket, and twice as expensive as an iPod."
