I guess ipod is better if you don't like OLED screens, faster processors, and HD output. I like ipods because I get to put poorly developed software on my computer (read: Bonjour/itunes). I am the average consumer, so I buy what Steve Jobs tells me to buy.

Between me and my husband we've owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I've settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
