Business 2.0: Panting for an iPod

Shoshana Berger writes that the iPod 30GB “puts the competition on ice” and confesses that her “aural fixation just got worse.”

“I’ve written about my iPod envy before. What kept me from nabbing one upon launch was the exorbitant price for what seemed like a “Walkman 2.0.” But now, having tested most other players, including e.Digital’s Odyssey 1000 and the Nomad Zen from Creative Labs (which, like clockwork, just released a 60-gigabyte model for $100 less than Apple’s (AAPL) 30GB iPod), I’m convinced that the iPod is worth the extra scratch. Why pay so much more? Because Apple’s version is still the only one that works on both Macs and PCs, the only one that includes a date book and calendar, and the only one so attractive it could be part of the design collection at the Museum of Modern Art.”
