Writes up EMI/iTunes news for Boing Boing without mentioning his widely-linked February 23 article for Salon, wherein he accused Jobs of not meaning what he wrote in “Thoughts on Music”. Doctorow then:
I doubt Jobs’ sincerity. I suspect he likes DRM because it creates
an anti-competitive lock-in to Apple.
I could not be happier right now. I really hope Apple decides to make a web-based version of the iTunes store so that I can buy iTunes tracks in future using Ubuntu Linux
Don’t hold your breath on that one.
