Jobs' iPhone to use eMusic not iTunes?

eMusic offers lifetime pass to Apple boss

eMusic, the world’s second-largest digital music retailer, is cheekily offering Apple’s Steve Jobs a free lifetime subscription for his new iPhone, according to 901am.com. The offer was made to thank Jobs for his support of the partial removal of digital rights management (DRM) software from online music.

"We know Steve Jobs loves music, so for his new iPhone we thought he might want something a little different from the Top 40 fare that iTunes focuses on," said David Pakman, eMusic President and CEO.

"eMusic specialises in the best music beyond the commercial mainstream, from breaking indie rock acts like Arcade Fire and the National, to jazz greats like Charles Mingus and Miles Davis, to electronic breakouts like the new release from Matthew Dear. All Steve has to do is call me up from his iPhone and I’ll get him a free lifetime pass to all the great music he can handle. We hope that he and all other iPhone users will explore what eMusic has to offer."

eMusic is also offering 35 free tracks to anyone who signs up for an eMusic trial at www.emusic.com/phone, including any new iPhone owners.
