Jobs on HD DVD Burners
In a Wall Street Journal (subscription required) article, Steve Jobs reveals his position on high definition DVD burners and Music Studios.
As the CEO of Pixar, Jobs is taking sides with content creators, suggesting that studios not release movies in the high-definition DVD format until adequate copy protection methods are in place. Jobs even suggests that HD DVD burners not be bundled with computers at all, but admits this is an "extreme" scenario:
"I hope we don't have to get to, but it helps to put the issue in perspective."
Sony has often been criticized by analysts that the conflict between their Music Division and Consumer Electronics divisions prevented their continued markethold on portable audio devices, allowing Apple to step in with the iPod.
