ATRAC's about as viable a technology as MiniDisc

Having worked for Sony, I know, they come out with some great technologies, but keeping them more or less proprietary, they're pointless for mass market use. If you're looking to buy a player, just make sure it supports MP3 and you're fine.

Yes, there are tons of better digital audio formats out there, but the majority of stuff is in MP3, as well as Windows-only WMA files and iTunes-only AAC (.M4A/.M4P) files. That's generally the deciding factor there. Do you buy music from Napster or Rhapsody? Or from iTunes? Neither?
