Apple: no video iPod now
Apple's director of iPod marketing worldwide, Stan Ng, has of the music player anytime soon. "There is no legal way today of taking a DVD and making it viewable on a portable device," he said, and "for a player with a 3 1/2-inch screen, you have to wonder if it would be worthwhile." Ng concludes that "fundamentally, at a corporate level, we've been clear about our involvement in music and photos - we'll see what happens with video over time," Mr Ng said.
