if itunes actually manages to beat out Bittorrent out of innovator fo the year, it’ll be a travesty. suprnova alone probably gets more downloads than itunes.

“Rob Glaser nominated for “Visionary of the Year?”“

You’re kidding, right? It’s nice to have a choice of a player that will do both AAC and WMA. Both Apple and Microsoft really piss me off with their exclusionary attitudes.
