In the newest issue of American Photo in thier product review section they give a great review to the ipod. At the end of the article they mention that APPLE is going to release windows compatible software "soon". I know others have been working on this but apple? Is American Photo assuming too much or do they know something we dont? I personally think it would be a good idea for apple to beat xplay to the punch, in fact I think that they have had this ability for a while now and were just making winows users lust after the product for a while and giving the loyals first crack. I have three friends who dont own macs but own ipods and they are constantly at my place updating from our shared library of over 3500 songs. It would be nice to get them out of my room!
