Mix: Steve Jobs, Japan tax, Microsoft store, China buses

Updated

Apple CEO Steve Jobs ranks No. 26 on Fast Company’s list of the “Greatest Business Leaders of the 20th Century.”

Japan’s publishing rights and collection group JASRAC is reportedly lobbying for a tax on digital music players, including iPods.

The NY Post reports: “Microsoft is on the prowl for a store in Times Square. The move would be the software giant’s first big stab at retail and may be an attempt to play catch-up with archrival Apple, which has hit a home run with its own branded stores, including its New York City flagship in SoHo.”

The Beijing Macintosh User Group has posted a report about the buses carrying Apple’s iPod ads in Beijing, China.
