A few weeks ago, on Tuesday June 1 to be exact, Steve Jobs helped kick off the D8 conference when he took the stage with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher of the Wall Street Journal. During an engaging 45+ minute conversation, Jobs explained the origins of the iPhone, his takeon the iPhone/Gizmodo ordeal, questionable iPhone call quality, and a host of other interesting and relevant issues.
And now, for the first time, the Wall Street Journal is making the entire interview available as a free download via iTunes.
Explaining the decision, John Paczkowski writes:
Since the close of the eighth D: All Things Digitalconference, we’ve been inundated with requests for a downloadable version of Apple (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs’s opening-night session with co-hosts Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher. Given their number, we’ve decided to oblige. The full Jobs session is now available on iTunes as both a video and audio podcast.
Over the next few weeks, All Things D will also release full-length video interviews conducted with other tech luminaries such Steve Ballmer, Ray Ozzie, and eBAY CEO John Donahoe.
