Mix: Samsung, Jobs profile, iNames, Sprint Nextel, Costumes

Samsung plans to launch a digital music store similar to Apple’s iTunes, according to Choi Gee-sung, the head of the company’s digital media business.

The Independent has a profile of Apple CEO Steve Jobs that contains some interesting quotes. “I end up not buying a lot of things,” he says, when asked how he chooses which gadgets to buy. “Because I find them ridiculous.”

The Taipei Times looks at how Apple began using the “i” in product names.

Mobile Tracker reports: “Sprint Nextel today became the first US wireless carrier to launch its own music store. The Sprint Music Store offers more than 300,000 songs [$2.50 each] that can be downloaded directly to a mobile phone over-the-air.”

The Cult of Mac blog is rounding up photos of people dressed up like iPods for Halloween, as well as iPods that have been dressed up.

“No one will beat Apple, no one ever has, no one EVER WILL”
Tonnes of people have beaten Apple. Perhaps you remember the Newton? Or the digital camera Apple came out with in the mid-late 90s?

If you’re only referring to the digital music market, you’re probably right.
