OK... here's the key that you're missing:

 

APPLE STILL OWNS THE IPOD!! EVERY OTHER MP3 PLAYER SUCKS COMPARED TO THE IPOD!!

 

What iPod owner is going to switch from iTunes to Bill Gates' newest creation?? Nice try but um.... you'll need some hardware to go with that dumb idea.

I looked up the definition of 'urge' on the web, one of the meanings made me laugh loudly:-

 

'the sensation from the bladder producing the desire to void.'

 

:D :wink:

If 83% of the MP3 players out there are iPods, then you automatically have lost 17% of the market.

 

I think that the market is hardware driven at the moment and there is nothing out there that can comptete with the iPod.

 

And on the off chance an MP3 player comes out to compete with the iPod then Apple have 'locked in' consumers who have purchased music on the iTunes Music store.

 

The other point to mention is that the DRM on Microsofts offering will be far more restrictive than Apple's DRM and I suspect that will limit its popularity.
