Theres other ways to put music on your ipod than itunes however most of them only work in linux or are worse than itunes is.
I love my droid but when it comes to mp3 players I only use apple. They are, in my opinion, some of the best mp3 players currently on the market. They're not too bad on price (yes theyre a little higher but you also pay for the apple logo.... its like anything else, your paying for the name as well as the product), they're very easy to use, and are very well written from a code perspective. I've never had any problems with them freezing or anything like that. They have semi-decent support (better than Creative in my experiences). Just because i like Apple doesnt mean i'm an "Apple fanboi" just like me liking droids doesnt make me a "Droid fanboi".
Just my two cents....
