Creative 'declares war' on iPod

Creative Technology says it plans to shell out US$100 million (Yahoo! News) in marketing money next year in an effort to take on current MP3 King, iPod, reports Reuters. "The MP3 war has started and I am the one who has declared war," Creative Chief Executive Sim Wong Hoo told a media briefing in Singapore. "I'm planning to spend some serious money -- I intend to out-market everyone," he went on to say. Creative says it is targeting a 40 percent share of the global MP3 player market in 2005, and intends to spend most of the marketing money in the United States, followed by Europe and Asia.

Well they do have a fairly ugly 5 GB iPod clone out now, who's to say they can't capture 40% of the market? I am, for one! Creative will never best the Apple iPod juggernaut.
