The iPod “blows away mobile music challengers” in sound quality and usability, according to analysts at Strategy Analytics who compared the iPod to four leading music-enabled phones.

PodShow, a podcasting company recently launched by “The Podfather” Adam Curry, has received $8.85 million in financing.

Duke University has struck a deal with Public Radio International to provide digital audio files for classroom use.

The Mopah scooter is a prototype scooter that uses your iPod’s unique serial number as its key. The scooter was Michael Tseng’s senior thesis project. [via Engadget]

Mobile challenger should have looked at the newest phones like the Sanyo MM-5600 which to me sounds very close to the ipod especially since it wil play aac coded music and uses aac for ringers if so desired.
