Jobs backed up his rhetoric with action this week, announcing a ground-breaking deal with London-based EMI Group, one of the four large conglomerates that dominate the recording industry.

In the early 1990s, a teenage punk fan named Damian Kulash wanted to release a compilation CD of songs from his favorite Washington bands. But Kulash, a Washington native and disciple of the city's DIY movement, needed cash to fund the project. He went to Dischord Records founder Ian MacKaye, the figurehead of the Washington punk scene, and asked for a loan. MacKaye agreed to give Kulash $2,000 — but not before laying a guilt trip on the kid. "He said, 'If you don't pay back this money, I won't have it to lend to somebody else, and you will singlehandedly be the person who shut down the D.C. scene.

Most of Paul McCartney's post-Beatles solo albums and those with his group Wings soon will be available digitally for the first time, EMI Music and Capitol Records announced yesterday. That makes him the final Beatle to have solo albums online. John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr already have recordings available for download. The offerings span his first solo effort, McCartney, in 1970, through his Wings hits Band on the Run and Wings at the Speed of Sound and on to his 2005 Grammy-nominated Chaos and Creation in the Backyard.

IN NINTH GRADE, the tedium of biology class was offset only by the high jinks of my lab partner, a fellow of infinite wit who, among other things, taught me to read miniature scores of Beethoven symphonies, which we hid behind our textbooks while the teacher droned on about amoebas.One day my chum announced he was working on his own symphony. I was suitably impressed. But after weeks passed and I heard nothing further, I asked how it was going."I don't know enough to write a symphony," he admitted rather sheepishly.

After a lifetime of working as a scientist, Andrew Uribe, 50, walked away to create a company based on his father's salsa recipe. His big break came about 18 months ago, when a top official at Ahold USA, the supermarket conglomerate, called to say he loved Uribe's product. But James Sturgis, director of supplier diversity at Ahold, could not put the salsa on the shelves of Giant Food stores and other Ahold supermarkets yet. Uribe's work was just beginning. Before he could earn big supermarket accounts, Uribe would have to ramp up production for his young company, called Emy's Salsa Aji, after his daughter, Emilia.
