PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Just before Christmas Songbird 1.4.0 was released, and a new fix versions was released today as 1.4.3. Songbird now supports MSC storage devices and CD ripping, bringing the app one step closer to replacing iTunes for some users. What's particularly interesting is that Songbird now specifically pushes their product against users of Android, Nokia and Palm smartphones -- which is something I also suggested a few months too. Hopefully Google, Nokia, and Palm will get behind the small team in San Francisco to help out the cause, since it's also on their best interest too.

I personally use iTunes. It has 3-4 small bugs, but other than that, it does the job perfectly for me.

iTunes would be good if it wasn't Apple product and if it wasn't so god damn resource-heavy :/ It seems it's impossible to get a plain music player/manager, without browsers, without video playback, without kitchen sink..

These days it's close to impossible to get anything without being forced to get the kitchen sink with it. Honestly, the only music player that I can think of which has a somewhat similar UI to iTunes and yet doesn't come with the kitchen sink is Rhythmbox. It's a music player, pure and simple, with some functionality for utilizing some iPod models. No video, no web browser.
Too bad it's basically been abandoned, I really enjoyed using it though it's still useable for the moment.
