Steve Jobs gave an interview today at D5 on some of the new developments at Apple Inc., including the forthcoming iPhone, the new Apple TV with YouTube, and the new version of iTunes that offers music without digital rights management, a.k.a. copy protection.

“That’s right. … It’s like offering a glass of ice water to people in hell.”
