Steve Jobs im ABC News Interview [Update]

Jobs starten und stoppen
Steve Jobs gab ABC News ein leidlich spannendes Interview, das sich netterweise auch als Audiofile (2MB .mp3) laden lässt.

JT: So here's a quick question. There are gonna be 3,000 free audio programs available, making it one of the largest podcast directories in the world. Why are they gonna be free?
SJ: Well, you know, podcasting— has been free since the beginning. It's been an emerging phenomenon that— has been, you know, growing very rapidly. But we're hoping to take it mainstream with— the latest version of iTunes, which has everything you need to podcast built right in it. So— podcasts I think they're gonna remain free. Although I do think we may— start to see some advertising tagged onto them— you know, in the coming months.

Viele Passagen hören sich leider eher an, wie aus Jobs Floskelkasten zusammengekramt, you know? Interessanter erscheint, was Jobs dem Wall Street Journal gesagt hat: "Mr. Jobs says Apple has an agreement from music companies that allows podcasters to play 30-second song clips in their shows."
Update: Michael Gartenberg bezweifelt es: "When we spoke with Apple they told us the 30 second clip concession applied to their own "iTunes new music" podcast not a blanket agreement for any podcaster to use."
