Apple Products Preferred by Discerning Consumers

Microsoft’s recent launch of their MSN Music service has been met with skepticism. A representative from Microsoft remarked, “We’re different because Apple operates a closed system.

To use Apple’s services, one must own an iPod. We provide more options for consumers who prefer variety.” However, this perspective seems to miss the mark.

Consumers have clearly shown a preference, much like the discerning parents who opt for Jif, the majority are choosing iPods. Indeed, 92% of all hard-drive-based music players and over 65% of all digital music players sold are iPods, indicating a strong consumer preference for Apple’s product offerings.

Given these statistics, it appears that the MSN Music service may struggle to gain significant market share and is unlikely to disrupt the dominance of Apple’s iTunes Music Store.
