    hmmm

    How is WMA superior to AAC or MP3? It is totally proprietary currently isnt it? Thats lame.

    The Size

    It was the size of the iPod mini that sold me. I need something ultra-portable or I wouldn't use it. Yes my Music library is much larger than the 4 GB size of the iPod, but with a clever Smart Playlist I keep my most played songs (most likely my favorites) and I keep the list limited to 3.5 GB and then I have a second list for Manually placing other songs (like a new album I just got). I may later down the road get another larger iPod to take on extended vacations, but I think the 1000 songs that will fit on the iPod will be enough when I go to the YMCA.

    Is the biggest Microsoft lackey you'll find... he insists that WMA is dominating the market, and that iTunes, despite its success, its the anomaly, and AAC is "controversial."

    This guy is the editor for Windows & .NET magazine... go to his web site, he goes on a massive tirade on how Mac gaming sucks, and then pats himself on the back for vanquishing Apple... of course he'll take whatever chance to rain on Apple's parade.

    Superior = Crippled now

    Apparently, 'superior' is a synonym for 'crippled' now...

    What an asslick he is.
    I guess everyone comparing the latest MP3 player to iPod
    has completely escaped this wonder?

    AAC is superior.
    WMA? Proprietary and from M$.
    Apple is still here and stronger than ever! Thanks to Steve Jobs.

    Suck it a******.

    They will support WMA.

    They will in order to sell the iPod to idiot windows users who
    don't know to look any further than CTRL-ALT-DEL every 1 out
    of 3 boots.

    I musta missed something

    When did WMA become "Superior" heck MP3 sounds better than WMA, and AAC is based on MPEG-4 so how can it not be the best.
