iTunes Challengers

BusinessWeek published a story this morning called Meet the iTunes Wannabes which shows why Apple dominates the market in legal music downloading. Some of the new competition that Apple faces includes Microsoft, MySpace, AOL, Samsung, Nokia.

None of these companies are trying anything new or innovative with their music services. Microsoft is the biggest challenger with its upcoming Zune media player — a weak copy of the iPod at best. None of these companies seems to understand the terms simplicity and innovation. Not that I’m complaining.
