The creation of the Elven Rings was a Fall (Tolkien's chief theme.) What elevorn suggest is that ringmaking was the characteristic form of Fall for the great of that Age. If, as ElendilTheShort suggests, creating "iPODS with free Themes of Illuvatar" were the characteristic fall of that age, then Sauron would have created the One iPod to play them all and then Frodo would have better kept his fingers because Sauron's Victory Song and iPod Touch would be both at hand. And that, I think, is why Otaku-sempai's scenario of Sauron being defeated by the Elven Rings is improbable. The Noldor always fall a little shorter than the Evil Powers, their victory songs never making to the top of the popularity charts on the orcwaves and orcraves.

The situation is summarized in Felagund's sixt (penultimate) item "it was probably inevitable that he would create the One Ring or an artefact with similar purpose."
