Zune (added)

So apparently, Microsoft has adopted the proprietary that I was so sure they'd be smart enough to avoid. Om writes about it, or rather writes about a Mac guy writing about it (who of course hates it). However, towards the end of his post, he mentions that Michael Wolf of ABI Research thinks that they're closed approach is fatal, which it is.

How Microsoft could make such a mistake is unimaginable. Chasing the iPod with an iPod clone with a couple cool extra features? Looks like life in the ivory tower is finally getting them. Unless this report is wrong and Microsoft comes out with an open platform, I partially retract my statements about Zune beating out the iPod. It's going to be much, much tougher.
