Now this is NOWHERE as cool as the iPod, but it looks like it might be the closest competitor at the moment. The Rio Riot – quaint name guys! – has all the design cred of a Scottish haggis, but the capacity – and more especially the software features – look to be killer. The big loser? The fact that it only has a USB connection. Forgedaboutit folks. You think downloading 400 albums across USB is going to be fun? That’s what makes the iPod’s Firewire so fab, it’s fast, fast fast.
