King of the Hill
There is a vast array of portable hard drive mp3 players (as opposed to flash drive) on the market. Coupled with these, there are also many options when it comes to digital music downloading. In the past few years, Apple has taken this market by storm. I could bore you with statistics, but it's already common knowledge that the iPod rules as king over all portable hard drive mp3 players. Could there be a weak point to this Apple Empire?
Yahoo! thinks that they just may be able to force Apple to share a piece of that digital music pie. Yahoo! has eager plans to launch an online music store in direct competition with the Apple iTunes Music store. How they plan to draw the masses of the Apple Cult away from iTunes, I am unsure. zdnetindia reports that Yahoo!'s Launch site will bear the new name "Yahoo! Music". Personally I feel that, if Yahoo! wants to create some converts they must offer the same ease, quality, and variety of iTunes, and cheaper. With a $.99/song price tag from iTunes, Yahoo! just may pull some of the music downloading market towards their side. As long as price is right.
