    iTunes 7 vs. Mediaplayer 11

    During the dry-runs of my biTunes presentation people often asked me why iTunes? iTunes happened to be the MP3 player I used on Mac and Windows. So I answered: "It doesn't matter, it's just an MP3 player and it's very similar to Media Player, Winamp or other players".

    Today, Microsoft released Windows Mediaplayer 11. I decided to give it a try, and found out there are indeed some similarities. Have a look at the screenshots below or this little movie comparing both.

    So again, why iTunes? Well biTunes sounds better than biMediaPlayer ;-) See you next week!
