BusinessWeek has posted excerpts of interview with Apple CEO Steve Jobs, in which he talks about innovation, research & development spending, music, the iPod, and being creative in a stagnant market. “I see a recovery in innovation coming out of this downturn,” said Jobs. “I see some very strong companies that have been built even in these very tough times. And I see some new sprouts popping up out of universities. I’m an optimist.”
