    ROFL! I guess they just had to admit it...apple make GREAT products, and the iPod is a prime example.

    [edit]
    Just noticed, it's not m$ opinion, it's ZDnet's

    They need to update their review. Did you notice that almost all of the things in their cons column have been eliminated by the new versions! Good job Apple!:)

    Is zdnet affiliated with (or owned by) MS other than the fact that they pull content? I think zdnet is generally respectable in regard to ingegrity in reviews etc.

    MSN did not review any of those machines. It bought or partnered this story and many others from ZiffDavis. Think of MSN as having a window with many panes to other places of the internet.

    I tried many links from the main msn page and they all ended at a page that said "with ZD" or "with Disney" or "with keen" and so on.

    They don't produce any content, they just link to it.

    Well, if I'm sure that if Microsoft didn't feel like ZDnet's review was a good one, they wouldn't link to it, now would they? :D
