    This is so true. I think of it as the ipod being a large insect lamp and any co petitor (fly) that comes gets shocked and dies. The ipod is what everything else is judged by.

    Creative is such a joke...

    I've seen their "offerings" and they suck crap-ola. What I find so funny is the fact that outside analysts are shooting down the wannabes. The CES show is supposed to be the best of the best - this is where all the companies who "declared war" (Creative - mainly) on the iPod get to show off their "amunition" - what a joke.

    A little note for Creative, Sony, m$ and all the others:
    If you really want to "kill" the iPod - you don't do it by out-marketing Apple - you do it by out-engineering Apple. Stupid a$$ mega-corps just don't get it and they never will. I hope they choke on their crow.

    You know, with all our worris and attention set on market share, I realise that, really, all I care about is if I have my iPod, i don't care if there are 10 million dell jukebox users out there. As long as the device I have pleases me, I'll be happy. I am very confident that even if Apple didn't have 87 % market share of the Hard drive based MP3 players I would still prefer theirs.
