Steve Jobs on Apple, iPods, Lifestyle Brand
Guardian Unlimited provides an interview with Steve Jobs during the Apple Expo in Paris. The interview offers little new information but does provide some insight into Steve Jobs and Apple.
Of most interest is the suggestion of new products in the pipe, while we are currently in a lull:
Apart from nano - which, as a replacement for the best-selling iPod mini, is a major move for the company - Apple's cupboard is fairly bare. It is a low point in the product cycle, with much of the behind-the-scenes work focusing on the Intel-based computers due next summer. But new iPods are on the way, and Jobs promises "a lot of new things in the pipeline".
Intel-based Macs are first expected in 2006, though there have been some persistent rumors that Dual Core PowerPC based PowerMacs are in the works.
