Warner Music CEO: Jobs doesn’t want interoperability

In addition to saying that iPod and iTunes will see competition from wireless network providers, Warner Music Group CEO Edgar Bronfman complained about Apple’s lock it has on the two products. When asked why the recording industry hasn’t pushed harder for an interoperable music format from digital music companies, Bronfman laid part of the blame on his own industry, but most of it on Apple and its CEO. “Convincing Steve Jobs of anything other that what he believes is a Herculean task for anyone. I know it has been for me. He does not want interoperability,” Bronfman said. “But I think interoperability will come, and I think consumers will demand it.”
