Newsweek iPod chat
A live chat transcript with Newsweek Senior Editor Stephen Levy on the iPod notes that the Newsweek's breaking iPod story was a planned early announcement (and not a leak or snafu) as well as discusses the possibility of a 60GB iPod, third-party iPod software development, the pending US Anti-Copyright legislation ("The Induce Act"), the iPod's battery, future compatibility issues, pricing issues, iTunes Music Store compression, the HP iPod, and more: "The point of our story, I guess, is that the iPod indeed has by virtue of its technology and style become the definitive device for digital music. It would be great if others tried to match its innovation and value and created a great competition in this field (then I bet we would see compatibility between devices sooner, as consumers would demand it)."

RealNetworks says it has created technology that allows songs purchased through its online music services to be played on Apple's iPod: Harmony Technology will allow users to securely transfer music bought using RealNetworks' music download services to an iPod or virtually any other portable music player. A test version of Harmony will be available on Tuesday: "Glaser said the new the system works by essentially translating the various anti-piracy technologies, to make the players' systems compatible with RealNetworks' system. RealNetworks said it was not concerned that the system would be illegal."
