The AppleTV is a hobby for Apple. Steve Jobs wants the AppleTV to be viewed as “a DVD player for the Internet.” YouTube is coming to the AppleTV in mid-June.
Whatâ€™s more, thanks to the popularity of iTunes on PCs, Apple has become a major Windows software developer. â€œWeâ€™ve got cards and letters from lots of people who say that iTunes is their favorite app on Windows,â€ noted Jobs. â€œItâ€™s like giving a glass of ice water to somebody in Hell.â€
Jobs said that the secret to Appleâ€™s success isnâ€™t in building huge factories. â€œAll we are is our ideas, or people. Thatâ€™s what keeps us going to work in the morning, to hang around these great bright people. Iâ€™ve always thought that recruiting is the heart and soul of what we do,â€ he said.
Steve Jobs and Bill Gates will be on stage together at D later today…
