    M$'s lamePod

    Of course m$ will price the zune the same (or lower) as the iPod. That will be the ONLY way they will be able to get people to switch to it. M$ can afford to lose money on these things. Look at what they did with the xbox. They lost how much money per console for how long? I feel m$ could give away these things and people would STILL rather buy an iPod. Just my 2 cents.

    I'm sure Testudo and louzer would agree with your last statement being that they love the Ipod and all. :)

    Dell 2

    They're going to give people what they want huh? I didn't know Apple had started offering OS X to third party PC companies. That's about the only way they could give people what they really way. No viruses, real security, "it just works" user experience. So Dell are going to sell Mac clones. Interesting!
