Well, iPods play m4as usually, I mean, it will play mp3s too, but m4a is the default format of apple music, so kind of, yes, no.

It's half-true, half-marketing.

Like the difference between Macs and PCs: Macs are PCs, but run Mac OS, as opposed to the vast majority of other PCs that run Windows.

iPods - unless the user has specified that iTunes etc imports songs as mp3s - plays AACs or m4a's (Apple's default formats).

I dont consider ipods MP3 players since they wont play mp3 files...they work with AAC files..........

MP3 files however dont play AACs that I am aware of...but I think they sound better...

Something to look at:

Same reason why they think Macs are better than PC's.

iPods or mp3 players.
They want to distinguish the crap from the good.
The crap being the iPod, of course.


Oh, i see. I have a creative zen, which is like an ipod, only you arent getting nearly as ripped off.

i hate when people refer to it as just "mp3" "hey man i left my mp3 at my house today"

because people are branded...

remember when everyone had a walkman?
it was actually called a portable cd player. Sony's portable cd player was called the walkman.

it was the 'leader of the pack' of that kind of stuff as far as the general public is concerned, just like some people see ipods as being superior.
badda boom badda bing, the most popular one gets called by its brand name.

Reminds me of a time in class when the teacher was going over rules about ipods and mp3s and a girl shouted "But iPods and mp3's are completely different"
>_<

Because Apple is ruining the music business, and has made everyone say iPod instead of mp3 player, but of course when I say 'My Zune' most people get confused.
And the part about their heads being up their asses too.

I would rather own a Ipod, than my Sansa player. The only reason is b/c Apple is really getting more advanced in terms of functions, than regular Mp3's.

Like the newer Nano video players?! Mmm, sexy.

At least outside the UK and USA, people call them MP3 players. Probably because most of us can't afford an IPOD.

Those chinese USB flash memories that play MP3 FTW !

Are you stupid or just stupid?

The underlying theme in any discussion involving the phrase "why do people ______" is that people are freakin' dumb. This is like asking "do you have a Band-Aid or a bandage?"
