Bill Gates Predicts the end of I-Pod

This time I think Gates is right. He predicts that mobile phones will soon displace MP3 players as the preferred choice for music downloads. Already Microsoft is positioning itself to be a major provider of such services.

I hope he's right -- not because I bear any animus toward Apple [although Steve Jobs has always rubbed me the wrong way], but because that will force the price of MP3 players down to a level where I might actually consider getting one.

Read about it here. [hat tip to the Instapundit].
