    I like how the article says nothing about Microsoft actually inventing the ipod but it's in the title, maybe because it's at Team Xbox?

    This is just over the GUI, which is silly. I'm guessing there were several patents put into place when the ipod was introduced, but they didn't patent this "auto DJ" feature which is such a general feature in today's music players it shouldn't be an issue.

    I remember seeing on TV that its a feature that Apple wants to introduce later, but doesn't have in there right now, IIRC.
