Steve Jobs is known for replying back to his emails. He actually takes time going through the thousands of emails that he recieves and writes back to them! A few things that Steve Jobs has revealed via his email replies.
Steve Jobs is now suggesting that Blu-ray is a dying technology. He was seen to first quote back in 2008 that the Sony-controlled Blu-ray was too controlled and licensing the technology was very complex to work with. Now he indicates that Apple might not adopt Blu-ray into its computers.
Jobs responded to a reader at Mac Rumors who asked him how soon Blu0ray drives would be out in the Apple Macs to which Jobs responded saying, “Bluray is looking more and more like one of the high end audio formats that appeared as the successor to the CD – like it will be beaten by Internet downloadable formats.”
Jobs might does seem to make sense, MP3 took over the market and super audio CD and dvd-audio were eliminated almost completely. Jobs’s focus is on downloaded high quality content rather than depending on a disk.
Apple seems pretty strict about how it works with Blu-ray. Blu-ray is almost a standard for many other manufacturers but Apple has not yet put them into their Macs. Even worse you can’t even buy an add-on drive to read Blu-ray discs because the Apple OS won’t control them.
Jobs had a one line response regarding the reception issues of the iPhone 4, “There are no reception issues. Stay tuned.”
