Gear Live takes on an interesting topic, the truth behind the quoted number of songs fitting on an portable audio player.

"Reading reviews of products like the Apple iPod, Sony Walkman, Dell Digital Jukebox, and the like you will find journalists quoting the number os songs the player can hold - however, there is some fine print to be looked at when considering one player over another strictly based on this specification.
I'll take the iPod for example. Apple states 5,000 songs for the 20 GB version and 10,000 songs for the 40 GB version. Now, let's take a closer look: These numbers are only valid when storing songs that are 4 minutes long, which are encoded in 128 kbs AAC format. "
