    Sent Steve Jobs an email!

    I sent Steve jobs an email, what do you think?

    Hello, I have recently checked out itunesU and it is wonderful, one thing bothers me about it though. What I disagree with is that it is limited to itunes, essentially if one does not use a supported platform they cannot obtain this valuable free information. I was wondering, has it ever crossed your mind to release this content to be mirrored? I ask this because everything is free so apple is not directly profiting from it anyway. Also I understand you do not want people leeching off your servers, that is why I said release to be mirrored. One could just release the content to a non-profit third party to set up a website with said content.

    Thank you for your time,

    my name

    You also forgot to add
    -I hate Apple

    I should mention, it will probably be filtered through all of the aspects of their corporate giant filtermail. They get bombed with thousands of email a day. Everything from ideas, death threats, technical questions, you name it. I speak of this from experience. I used to be the webmaster at Gateway.com and filtered through thousands of messages per day for a single mailbox only to try and find technical questions regarding the website problems. You should have seen what Ted's inbound email looked like, he would never read any of it... just have his team of 10 ted's sifting through the junk only to send maybe 0.1% in printed form on to the desk of the executive administrator of Ted Waitt, then there was a fraction of those which made it to the hands of Ted himself.

    So, don't forget to add in that "I hate Apple" at the end of your email. If not for you, do it for me.

    Haha. Yeah, I like that email okay- since it's all free, it certainly makes sense. However, it seems they want to use it to increase the potential value of their products, the iPod Touch and iPhone. So while it may be free to those who have access to iTunes, the main appeal seems to be the 'taking it with you' aspect.

    Perhaps we should develop a similar piece of software for Android, if there isn't one already? Then provide that information freely? Of course, there is much of this content on the web already.

    But thank you for taking the initiative and the time to suggest that to him- it certainly would reduce the amount of work done to gather and distribute that information.

    HTC's preference of "plastic and glass" makes a lot more sense than "aluminium, glass and rubber".
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    +1 for HTC

    I'm sure Steve gets a good share of hate mail every day, especially after the iPhone fail... What baffles me is why so many people ordered a phone that doesn't work properly.

    ps. a can of coke is made from aluminum. That doesn't make it any better than a plastic bottle.
