Description:: Here's a quick example: there were any number of iPod Nano clones on display at the show, each with the same price-point as the Apple and with worse industrial and interface design.

I was hoping for pictures of the Nano imitators, they were probably bad, but not Dell DJ bad (or Dell anything, which is all craptacular).

I did like this quote Vista delivers the same functionality as Tiger. But 12 months later. And less sexily. There's no word as "sexily" but that's neither here nor there, Vista is actually in a way almost five years behind OS X in some ways. Apple does such a piss poor job of marketing OS X that people will THINK Microsuck actually invented/innovated (like many Windoze lusers actually DO think), however, it's the usual of Apple innovates and M$ just copies, copies, copies. At least they do thing thing called MARKETING!!! Wake up Apple! But of course, keep on doin' what you're doing.

Yeh i agree that something is going on with the new creative winning over the new ipod.

The ipod was there right?

OMG, did the iPod video rip-off from "Creative" really win the Best of CES award. That's disgusting, I despise the whole home electronic industry if that's the case.

Interesting point. What's worse, a bad copy of a good thing, e.g. an imitation Nano, or a mediocre but original design, e.g. a Dell DJ?

Definitely, a mediocre but original design...at least there's a chance it can only get better next time, and a possibility by engaging original thought the designer might stumble on something "design worthy".
