    Very nicely done. In looking over it, I’m seeing many apps that look interesting, but I’m not sure what they are called. Any chance that we could get a list of the apps that are shown?

    Nice mosaic! That big number is 250,000 as of today; as in 250,000 different apps now available for the iPhone and/or iPad. Way to go, Apple!

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor
