Re: Ipods and mp3 players question
There's a reason iPods are so popular, in fact, several reasons.
i) Great design. Aesthetically, they are fantastic. They are a great looking device. That is probably as important a reason as any other.
ii) Easy to use. Yes, they are incredibly easy to use. Anybody can use one.
iii) Compatibility. They are highly compatible devices and work with a number of file formats.
iv) Build quality. They are built very well.
v) Apple Marketing. Apple do great marketing; this is a more recent Apple innovation, but their adverts are fantastic.
I could start on a few more. I like iPods, I can see their flaws as devices, but I think they are actually really rather good devices.
