Did I hear the Word Alacrity

Apples I-Pod has enjoyed a monopoly for over 4 years since its launch in '02 capturing over 75% market share. Recently Microsoft has announced the launch of a substitute portable music player " Zune". Zune to be launched in NOv'06 is supposed to have multiple functions and priced lower to I-Pod. Apple nimbly responded by announcing price cuts and better design I-Pods to capture and defend its market share. Thats Alacrity. More value-for-money proposition in effect. So they are probably skimming the market. What makes me wonder is that why no on could give competition to Apple for so long.
