XPod: iPod for the masses

post #1 of 2

from Mediafour Corporation's website:

[quote]What is XPod?

If you've seen the fabulous new <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00005S0M5/mediafour/002-9291415-0338465" target="_blank">Apple iPod</a>, you are probably in agreement with all of the <a href="http://www.apple.com/ipod/reaction/" target="_blank">reviewers</a> who are impressed by it, and some who proclaim it the best personal MP3 player ever to hit the market.

You are probably also as surprised as the reviewers are that the iPod doesn't work with Windows!

Here at Mediafour, cross-platform computing is what we do best, so we're readying an inexpensive new software package called XPod, which will make the iPod work with Windows Me, 98, 95, NT 4.0, 2000 and XP.<hr></blockquote>

Although some may see this as hurting the iPod's "exclusivity" on the Macintosh, I believe that such interest in developing for an Apple product, from a non-Apple-centric company, should bode well for Apple's mission to "convince those other 95 people that Macintosh offers a much simpler, richer and more human-centric computing experience".

I support Apple venturing into other markets besides their small and valueless one they currently posess.

Perhaps if the few people who are going to buy the iPod on the windows side realise how cool it is, they might realise all apple stuff is like this and go on a spending spree and buy a dual 800 and a cinema display <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />
