Jobs: Greed is Bad


Apple CEO Steve Jobs is making the right stand against record industry pressure to hike prices at iTunes, but it is odd to hear him deploy the g-word.

Apple and Jobs have made stacks of cash by selling high-margin items to the needy—public school systems in the case of PCs, iPods in the case of chronically insecure hipsters. Just call the recording industry stupid, Steve, and leave it at that.

Then again maybe Jobs thought the greed card would fly in Paris and across "social justice" obsessed Europe. Shrewd marketing, but not greed. Never greed.
