review in the San Francisco Chronicle says that, when it comes to digital jukeboxes, Apple’s iPod is at the head of the class.

Now that Apple has revamped the line and introduced an iPod for Windows, it’s clear the iPod will continue to set the pace even though they “still cost two or three times more than a CD player that also plays MP3s,” the review says.
The iPods also require Windows ME, Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
The Chronicle likes the fast FireWire connection and huge storage space. “The iPod wasn’t the first hard-drive portable music player, but the iPod was the first that was small and light enough to rival flash-memory players,” the review notes.
Apple introduced iPods for Windows, a 20GB model, and reduced prices on earlier models earlier this month at the Macworld Conference & Expo in New York. See our
