zune may broke creative, iriver and so on

but ipod will still be the no.1
Same was said about Atari, when Famicom(Nintendo) hit the scene.

Subway was never expected to outnumber McDonalds 10 years ago, but look at them now.
only time will tell. Honestly though, since Apple has just lowered prices and increased storage/batt. life, iPod is still a contender. We already have seen in just the past week, zune prices rumoured as low as 229.00 in response - for this I want to thank Apple, since I plan on buying a zune anyways.
Ironically, if Apple kept iPod prices higher this Christmas, zunes would debut at a higher price, probably disuading potential buyers. Besides, Apple has all the price points covered.And I thought that Apple wasn't worried about the zune.
