RealNetworks seeks Microsoft's help in portable music foray

RealNetworks seeks Microsoft's help in portable music foray "RealNetworks Inc., which is suing rival Microsoft Corp. for $1 billion, said it wants to use Microsoft's software to help it sell music over the Internet for play on portable devices.
RealNetworks wants to make its music files playable on devices that use the Windows Media Audio format, created by Microsoft, RealNetworks Chief Executive Rob Glaser, 53, said in an interview yesterday.
...
Glaser yesterday criticized Jobs for refusing to open up Apple's software and Apple's decision to leak his e-mail, joking that that he's "grateful" for Jobs' efforts to get him publicity.
"Steve leaked it in a way that one might say is not the apex of scrupulous business practices," he said."
