I love product bullet comparisons, I love them so much that I decided to create one that I’ve been asked to provide on a number of occasions1. Of course, that is between Admin Arsenal and Apple iTunes. I am biased, though, since I wrote one of them2, so you should search the web for other Admin Arsenal/iTunes comparisons if you want the unvarnished truth3.
