Steve Jobs interview

The Guardian has posted a transcript of an , in which he notes that the UK music market is "very, very, tiny" with only about 50,000 songs sold per week, while more than 2.5 million are sold each week by Apple in the US. Jobs also notes that the majority of iPods sold are used on Windows: "We brought the iPod to Windows. That was a big decision. That was basically a decision not to use the iPod to drive people to Macs. We're going to use it as a music device, and we're going to put it on Windows." The article also says the difficulty in bringing iTunes to Europe was the issue of distribution "rights" and not negotiations with the labels.
