Say Hello to the mPod?

Microsoft, everyone's favorite computer empire, is apparently working on an iPod-style music and video player, hoping to have the final product ready to roll come this Christmas. What more, the Microsoft music player will come with an iTunes-style music program/store and will feature Wi-Fi capabilities, which is planned to allow users to download music and videos without being connected to a computer – this feature alone could spell trouble for Apple should a competing capability not find its way into the iPod. In typical Microsoft fashion, expect the launch of these devices to be part of a multi-million dollar campaign; also in typical Microsoft fashion, I would be surprised to see virii for the devices before they debut. Stay tuned.
