    The point of the article seems to be that the Sony/Apple music quality question is hot air, because some people WANT more music at lower quality. And to show that Sony's 48kbps files are probably acceptable, they say, "Besides, if the sound quality of compressed music was substandard, it's hard to see how Apple moved 860,000 iPods during its fiscal third quarter."

    OK...

    (I'll just enjoy the Dell ad at the top, with one scene that says "I Want More Security"... with a stock photo of a guy using an iBook :D What company besides Dell is SO cheap that they keep using stock photos instead of bothering to show their actual product???)

    Bwahahahahah! Guess this guy has never checked out hydrogen audio. Sure pal if your lower bitrate sounds so good why does connect use 132kbs ATRAC?

    Plus there's the assumption that 128kbs is the minimum for an iPod when in fact it's 16kps so Apple could meet the sony head for head.
