News Analysis: Hollywood Mogul Plays by Technology

News Analysis: Hollywood Mogul Plays by Technology "Mr. Jobs points out that Hollywood has been much more sophisticated than the recording industry about expanding its distribution strategy. It is already possible, for example, to watch movies in a wide range of different ways, including rental videos, pay-per-view and even free television.
Some industry executives have wondered whether Mr. Jobs's breaking off the Disney negotiations was partly a prelude to efforts to take the top job at a Hollywood company - maybe even Mr. Eisner's job.
But others note that Mr. Jobs has always done best when he has stayed close to the technology. And they predict that this new media mogul will have no need to go Hollywood."
