The Independent has published an interview with Steve Jobs that was conducted during the iPod nano launch in Paris:

Imagine the scenario: a billionaire walks into a mobile phone shop. The sales assistant says, “Can I help you?” but gets the reply “Just looking, thank you.” The man tries a few phones, lifting his glasses to look at the detail of the display. He presses a couple of buttons. He shakes his head. He could buy any phone in the shop; in fact he could buy the shop, or even buy the chain. But he doesn’t. He walks out, empty-handed.

  1. To be precise, it’s a *profile* of Jobs and his approach to technology – such as, which piece of technology has he bought recently that delighted him? (You won’t be able to guess the answer.)
    There wasn’t a “launch” of the nano in Paris; this came during a big press conference. That’s clear in the article, I think.
