Apple Chairman Steve Jobs said Wednesday that effective immediately, owners of iPhones will be able to download ringtones that can be associated with individuals on their contact lists. He said that if anyone from NBC wants to contact him, his phone will play John Lennon's "Give Peace a Chance." Otherwise, Jobs appeared indifferent to NBC's decision to yank its programs from Apple's iTunes Music Store. Overall, he said, the decision amounts to "zero. ... Music dominates iTunes." Separately, he told BusinessWeek magazine that he'd love to revive Apple's original deal with NBC "and hopefully over time we will. ... We've gotten very puzzled reactions from the other television studios. We sell 550 TV shows provided to us by 58 broadcast and cable networks. Rome is not burning here."
