But I like FM. I like the way you can copy files straight from the file system to the player- and back again. I like the price. I don't know much more about them...
If Apple made the ad they could slam MS for ditching their partners. They could slam Wal-Mart for shutting down DRM servers. (did that actually happen?) I've never tried to manage more than a handful of songs on Windows outside of iTunes, so I can't say much about that.
Positives for iPod: I like scroll wheels. I love the look and feel. I think the touch screen interface on the touch is nothing short of brilliant, down to little things like bouncing at the end of a list. The screen is durable. The battery has never left me hanging. App Store - virtually endless potential.
Maybe neither side wants to dig too far into this one.
