    I have always felt that Creative has the MUCH better sound.

    This is through my ears only. YMMV.

    1) Long Battery life : they are the same?
    2) Flexible use of control : Ipod has the better interface
    3) Cool looking : iPod again, but you might wanna check out offerings for iRiver too
    4) Big storage : neither, what are you thinking?

    None! Go for iriver or iaudio. I got ipods and they only look good. Then you put on a protective case, it doesn't look good anymore! Creative's QC not very good.

    Whoops! Hahaha... Guess I am pretty dated with iPods liao!

    60GB iPod at $728
    40GB iPod at $528

    For protection, I merely gaffered the chrome backing and slipped it into an iPod sock. So far, almost zero scratches.

    And the more u take care of it, the more likely it'll get scratched. These days, I have a tendency to bochup my iPod (unlike my 1st 5GB iPod) and it takes care of itself very well. It only hiccupped once and dat was a nightmare. But so far so good.

    And it can also function as a HDD for ur camera. Just get the camera attachment, plug it into ur iPod and plug ur camera to the attachment and u're good to go. Pictures gobbled by the HDD and frees up ur CF ready for another round of shooting.

    As for sound quality, I'd say its highly subjective and perception of sound quality is shaped by the opinion of others. But I'm not an audiophile, nor do I have the legendary 'Golden Ears' that can catch 1Hz of difference.

    Get whatever u like and enjoy it. An MP3 player, after all is for ur personal enjoyment.
