Jobs: BluRay = Mafia
He admitted that retrospectively he feels ashamed that Apple’s name is associated to Blu-ray, as he thinks that BD supporting associations look today more like Mafia than anything else.
Bereits 2008 meintes Steve Jobs, BluRay sei „a Bag of Hurt“ (einen „Sack voller Schmerzen“) für Entwickler, weil es aufgrund der Lizenzgebühren beinahe unmögilch sei, Software für solch ein Format bereitzustellen:
Concerning authoring on Blu-ray, it seems impossible to provide software supporting such format for consumer market. In addition to DRM, here it is the cost of licenses that slow down the entire process; one would have to start paying 3,000 USD to AACS, then 80,000 USD to Sony, 40,000 USD to Sonic, etc.
