Business is money. No doubt. That is why I study it that is why I want to master it.
Most reviews say IPod sound quality is not as good as Zen. I can notice it but I might have more trained ears than you but I am into audio equipment too. Don't get me wrong, the IPod is great because #1 it is marketed with an incredible strategy, #2 it is 100 times more ergonomic than its competitors, #3 it is idiot proof, and #4 TON of accessories. But when you go into audio performance it is not as good.
But when it comes to portable players, ergonomics is very important (the Zen is HUGE) but what really makes IPod sell is how it is marketed. It has become fashion.
