  3. What are these me-toos going to offer to persuade iPod users to migrate though?

    As you note, Apple has a total end to end value system ( add in the search, music metadata, analytics ), its not just the music. And the consumer device is still iConic.

    I suspect (looking at the history of the Text and Webpage based ‘Nets) that the play that will undo iTunes’ dominance will be an open garden system, as that has a greater utility and unleashes the creativity of the many. It just takes longer to put together as it is a heterogenous ecosystem of multiple suppliers.
