"Apple is falling behind"2.5 starson by pctec100
Pros: Great interface, storage capacity and form factor.
Cons: Falling behind competition on audio quality and features.
Summary: I was upgrading from an old Dell player so I took a look at Ipod since it's the market leader.
I was impressed with the interface and the software. I also like the Calendar and Contacts. The device has a nice design, it's small and light but I think they sacrificed on display size to make it smaller. There are a ton of accessories available.
I was disappointed that it had some missing features. It is missing an FM turner and does not offer wireless syncing and/or sharing which is available in many of it's competitors. For me the biggest omission it's the devices ability to work with subscription music services.
I know some people don't care for protected music but I do like it. I can get all the songs I want for a small monthly charge. The way I see it I already pay monthly fees for TV get greater variety, why not music too?
Most importantly is that I thought the Ipod's audio quality was lacking compared to other devices in the same price range. Even with my premium headphones attached I found it disappointed.
