CNN/Money on new iPod
CNN/Money columnist Patrick Regnier says "Steve Jobs just . And that ticks me off." Regnier offers praise for the new iPod Mini, which he says "packs a lot of power into a simple, clean package." Regnier comments, however, that by already owning one iPod, and by using Apple's iTunes store, he was "locked" into Apple's product family, because of compatibility issues. When asked why a more open-platform approach could not be followed, Apple says it's a "quality issue" -- the company wishes to maintain control over the quality of the content from its store.
