There have been so many iPod killers announced over the years, with such little success, that it's almost as if the entire US military, say, had been trying for years to kill a man with wonky kidneys living in some sort of cave and yet he still issues tape-recorded messages on a semi-weekly basis.

And here we go again, another iPod killer being lined up by Microsoft. It's important for them to kill off the iPod, having killed off iTunes in September 2004 with Windows Media Player 10, and then again in January this year with Windows Media Player 11 and leaving iPod owners with no way of getting music onto their devices.
