I Love Product Annoucements...

Of course a new product "is said to offer" X, where X beats their competator. However, unless you're releasing the product tomorrow, that doesn't really mean jack. While I'm happy to see a competator, if MS wants to play in this market, Apple may want to decide that they want to play in the OS licensing business. It's hard to say what will happen by Xmas. Heck, supposudly we're going to have PS3's, Wii's, and now MS-iPod-Killer's. I'll believe all of it when I see it.

Related to this of course is that Apple has been hiring game developers as of late, specifically game developers skilled at console and limited memory systems. I wouldn't be horribly surprised if Apple and Nintendo were teaming up to offer GB, GBC, and GBA games on iPod's sold for 99 cents over the iTunes Music store.

That idea's got as much backing as this stuff. I can make things up too.

New MS portable could be in stores by Christmas //
Sources claim the new device - allegedly created under the guidance and supervision of Xbox evangelist J Allard with entertainment and devices president Robbie Bach - will allow consumers to download music using Wi-Fi technology. It's said to offer better picture quality than Apple's iPod.
