BusinessWeek online has posted an interview with Apple CEO Steve Jobs. “Apple’s visionary-in-chief looks at tech’s condition today and says:  “I see a recovery in innovation coming out of this downturn”

Q: Will we see more groundbreakers like the iPod from Apple?

A: The iPod is not a new category. Music is not new. It’s not a speculative market. It’s a very, very large market. It’s been around for thousands of years and will be around as long as humans exist. So it’s not like saying we’re going to go build an information appliance or some technical curio and hope the market exists. We’re taking a giant market and bringing it into the Digital Age. That requires hardware, software, and the ease-of-use talent that Apple has.

I'm a passionate, long-time lover of Apple products, and was a civil draftsman and graphic designer before creating the iLounge web site. My prior projects include work for The Los Angeles Times' LATimes.com, and the company Creative Domain, where I developed websites for clients including Columbia Pictures, Disney, Fox Studios, Universal Pictures and Warner Brothers. As the Publisher of iLounge, I direct the site's community forums, photo galleries, iPod User Group, and general business affairs, which have grown under my watch to over sixteen million page views every month. I'm happily married with one daughter, one dog (Rocket the Wonderdog), one cat (Ferris), many iPods, iPhones, iPads, and two turntables.
