Apple would "love to have a $100 iPod", Newsweek reports.

Interviewed by the publication, Apple CEO Steve Jobs absolutely denied that the company does not want to ship a cheaper, $100 iPod. "We're constantly trying to make cheaper iPods," Jobs alleges, adding, "We're working on the next step."

Jobs also discusses the Beatles' lawsuit against Apple's music activities. Dismissing this as a "trademark issue", Jobs says it's up to a judge to declare the case. Describing the affair as "unfortunate", Jobs says: "I'd do anything for those guys."

Apple's leader has an ambitious vision for the company's iTunes Music service: "Maybe if we’re lucky, Apple can be the Amazon or eBay of downloaded music," he told Newsweek.
