Dell's Rollins dismisses iPod as a 'fad'

The screwiest thing he says: ""Well, those things that become fads rage, and then they drop off. When I was growing up there was a product made by Sony called the Sony Walkman--a rage, everyone had to have one. Well, you don't hear about the Walkman anymore."

Yeah you don't hear it because it is ubiquitous, and nearly everyone on earth owns one. It's also being replaced by portable audio players, like the iPod.

Neuros 80gByte Audio Player

This player hits all the high spots for features. They've also made the OS and Firmware open source, though it appears they've had to take down the source because some of their vendors claim they've released proprietary information. It sounds like they'll work to get past that roadblock. And they released the schematics.

So we can look forward to some Neuros hacking. Perhaps even a sane OS that lets you drag mp3s and such onto the disk and play them without going through a hokey file copying utility.
