Hmm. I woulda thought Apple would own the only rights to produce this kind of software... I am right?

Apple could always block them until they decide that it's time to let windows users in... Like PocketMac... let someone else do the R&D this time

Looks like a hoax to me.

Yeah, looks like they are trying to make a large list of email addresses so they can sell them.

I doubt it is a hoax. They also make MacDrive 2000, a utility for mounting HFS and HFS+ disks on Windows machines. Having that intellectual property takes them at least half the way to creating an iPod client.

Apple couldn't stop them from selling this app even if they wanted to. (Just like they can't stop you from installing Linux on your Mac.) But why would they want to? Apple will still get their $400, they still won't have to worry about fielding any support calls with funky Windows hardware, and those Windows users who have an iPod would be much more likely to consider using a Mac in the future.
