Jobs? THE Steve Jobs who conspired with publishers to RAISE prices of e-books by 30-40%, just to spite Amazon? That Steve Jobs? You believe he wrote a letter asking Big Content to END DRM?

Jobs only let go of DRM when it was absolutely forced by the market. And, when he did it, it was presented as if he had this glorious, consumer-friendly idea, but every other company was already doing this. Apple was the last to hop on board.
