Apple’s iPod may be considered to be pretty great, but is its almost godlike status in the mp3 player market justified? Poptech.blogspot has a crack at answering that question.
I started out shopping for an MP3 player as a Christmas Gift over the holidays and wound up reading hundreds of reviews on all the available players. After much thought I narrowed the features that the player had to have:
1. Support MP3 bit rate of 192 Kbps or higher.
2. Drag and Drop File transfer both ways (no software)
3. Universal File Storage (not just MP3s)
4. User Replaceable Battery (Either Rechargeable or Standard)
I personally like the iPod, but I do think they’re a bit pricey, and I hate having to use the iTunes software. I mean, have you tried inputting song information manually? Holy K6-2’s, just don’t.
