I used to really like Sony stuff, but for the past few years, Apple have made Sony look clunky, unintuitive and out-dated.

I used to always listen to my sony walkman cd player, it NEVER skipped, I would drop it and do everything I could possibly do to break and it still played like a champ.
Now I just listen to iTunes on the Mac and I plan on getting an iPod sooner or later..

All of these companies are talking about how their video player is going to be dominate.
All I can say is video players will never sell as well as a basic mp3 player. There isn't as much of a demand for them, and there never will be.
Yes, it's true demand will go up (probably when Apple makes a "real" video player) but video is just not as great of a medium for portabillity.....
audio = passive
video = you need to focus (couldn't think of the right word)
Looking for a powerbook.

Sony completely dropped the ball with their MP3 players. I think that at this point they should simply cut their losses and pursue the last truely innovative product they have and pursue it with all ther verve and gusto that Apple pours into the iPod.
What is it's last, best innovation, you ask? It's their electronic book, the ereader. Right now it is, at best, a beta product. It's a bit half-baked with an unforgiveably paltry 64Mb of RAM and it begs for a sensible (512Mb) upgrade. Also, at $349, it's crazy over priced.
But it has the potential to become the book which replaces all other paperbacks and novels. As someone who reads constantly, I want a more convenient way to carry reading material with me and the ereader is the ticket.
I think the ereader could be a winner -- if Sony pulls it's head out and does it right. But Sony's weakness is underestimating what their target market is looking for and I have a bad feeling their ereader will go the way of the minidisk. Sigh.
