RealNetworks said yesterday that Steve Jobs had “rebuffed an offer by RealNetworks’ chief executive Rob Glaser to meet and discuss forming an online music alliance involving Apple’s best-selling iPod portable players,” notes AP (see yesterday’s report). “He’s in the neighborhood, but whatever meeting Rob wanted with Steve isn’t happening,” said RealNetworks spokesman Greg Chiemingo in the story. “Steve just doesn’t want to open the iPod, and we don’t understand that.”
