WMP 11 has the Urge to unseat iTunes

WMP 11 has the Urge to unseat iTunes

Oh, sorry, I should have put "bad pun alert" in the headline. Anyway, analysts have been saying for a while that iTunes' time is coming, and Microsoft's Windows Media Player 11, out today in beta, is looking to be the jukebox that gives the iDominance a little what for. It's getting rave reviews for, uh, its iTunes-like interface, coupled with some handy extras such as the ability to reverse-sync devices--that is, take music, photos, or videos that you got from your home computer off a device and onto another computer (say, a work computer, or a new computer) without having to, you know, turn on hidden folders or something. Nice. Very nice.
