Excuse me for just one minute... First off, battery life is based on the compression format played back. The iPods battery life is up to 12hrs at 192KBPS playback. Sony's is 30hrs at 92KBPS.... That is 100KBPS less then the quality of the iPod compression on MP3s. So if the iPods format sucks, then MP3 sucks? Hmm, it is the most popular, most versitile compression format, so I guess iPods format doesn't suck now does it? My iPod is GOD. It get 12+ hrs battery life, and is sleek, small, tough, and customiable with printable fronts for it from HP. You all need labotamies.
