    Good ol' ZDNET/CNET

    "Apple claims"? Nice spin!

    Nielsen SoundScan says Apple has 80% of the market--with the other 20% including ALL other stores, not just Napster.

    So, Apple is spreading "claims," are they?

    Maybe someone at ZDNET/CNET is taking articles and slanting just the headline, on purpose? You have to wonder. The articles themselves often have bias too, but when they don't the headline often still does.

    You have to wonder if those Dell advertisements on their websites are having some influence over their decisions. :D It's like PC Magazine in the late 1980s. They would review 5 of something and no matter how bad the Microsoft product was, it won.
