“Hello iPod, Goodbye, MD”

Gizmodo reports that Apple has launched an ad campaign in Japan which rejects Sony’s Mini Disc player. The ad slogan reads, “Hello iPod, Goodbye, MD.”

“Sony really dropped the ball by letting Apple get a foothold in the portable audio market, with the Walkman they had practically owned the entire notion of carrying your music around with you for over two decades.”

iPods will never replace MDs until they can record. I think I’ve found my new MD… It records! It does crossfading!!! It has ethernet!!! It plays OGGs!!! It’s the same size as the iPod!!! It’s got 20/40 GB!!! It’s as small as the iPod and a weighs less. This is one sweet little player.
