Steve Jobs: “We’d love to have a $100 iPod!”

“Apple’s charismatic CEO sat down with NEWSWEEK’s Steven Levy—after introducing the Windows version of iTunes and the upgraded iTunes Music Store last week—to discuss the world of digital music. [...]

Still, $300 to $500 is an obstacle to a lot of people.
No, of course I don’t think it’s too costly. Fifty million homes have DVD players that cost that kind of money. For music lovers, I don’t think it’s a hurdle at all. There are sneakers that cost more than an iPod.
Some think you wouldn’t want to sell a $100 iPod because the profit margin would be so low.
What are you talking about? We’d love to have a $100 iPod! We just don’t know how to do it right now. We’re constantly trying to make cheaper iPods. We’re working on the next step.”

Jobs is killing me, he’s doing it again. It’s terrifying to listen to him talk. He will not be able to learn from the sins of his past. iPod market share charts will quickly mimic that of the Mac, down ‘til they’re irrelevant (again.)  Jeez I love this company and it’s products and hate the people who are running it into the ground again.
