Microsoft to make iPod rival?

By Derek Sooman on
iPods are everywhere. Each day as I journey to work, I see hundreds of the little blighters. Everyone seems to have one; there is no denying the success of these devices. And what does Microsoft want to do with rivalís success? Why, quash it, of course.

Now comes a BusinessWeek story putting flesh on an idea that's been floating around for some time. The magazine reports that Microsoft has a team of people working on a potential new device, to be created by Microsoft, that would take on the iPod directly.
In addition to having audio and video capabilities, the iPod rival would likely feature game playing facilities as well.
