Steve Jobs: world’s best linkbaiter

Wow, I was just doing my link blog and I see I’m the last guy in the world to link to Steve Jobs’ memo about DRM. Let me get this straight. He sells my family three iPods that have DRM on them, then he turns around and says “that game is over.” Yeah, I’m not cynical. He gets everyone in the blog world to say “yeeehaaww.”

Meanwhile we all forget that the iPhone isn’t open to third-party developers and that the iPod has near-monopoly-status marketshare already.

So, why is he doing this? Maybe he noticed that most iPod users don’t buy many songs from iTunes. Why? We’d rather get a CD from Amazon, rip it ourselves so it doesn’t have DRM, thus denying Steve Jobs his rightful $.99 a song.

But, like I said, I’m not a cynic. And, in case you’re already sick of Steve’s DRM memo, I only put three things onto my link blog about it with dozens of other things that aren’t on TechMeme or Digg.

Oh, and thanks Gerald Buckley for the kind words about my link blog. I love his metaphorical imagery: “In Guy Kawasaki speak… he eats like a hummingbird and poops like an elephant. If you don’t yet subscribe to Mr. Scoble’s link blog you might consider it. There are some fine gems in that poop!”

Poop, poop, poop, er, “J, J, Shift-S, J, J.”
