Apple owes a lot of its success to Steve Jobs successfully negotiating with the record labels in the runup to the launch of the iTunes music store. That success led to the rise of the iPod, which paved the way for Apple’s comeback and eventual dominance. But though it had early success with music content, Apple has really struggled in recent years in the content wars. In this video I document how Apple has fallen behind on its attempts to distribute movies, television, music, books, and news content.
