iPod, iTunes, and iTunes Music Store competitors lack Apple's seamless integration and ease

Apple iPod competitors are trying to compete by building in features, available to iPod users via third-party add-ons, such as FM tuners, replaceable batteries, voice recording, etc. according to an article by Daniel Greenberg in The Washington Post.

The built-in microphones in these iPod also-ran players are "hardly hi-fi" and built-in FM "may not have crystal-clear reception," but "these options have become nearly standard among Apple's competitors," Greenberg explains.

Greenberg also writes, "Music players also plug into music-management programs on a computer, an area where Apple retains a sizable advantage with its iTunes software. All other competing players require using some other application, often Microsoft's Windows Media Player software. That has been greatly improved and offers more features than iTunes but still lacks the seamless integration and ease of Apple's program."

"That problem alone leaves competing players stuck in second place -- at least, among the great majority of buyers who don't covet extra features for their own sake. The other manufacturers, for all their occasional creativity, have yet to integrate all the components of a successful audio-on-the-go experience as thoroughly as Apple has," Greenberg writes.
