Millions of people still need iPods!
This means 200 million in the USA (at least) do NOT have iPods, and I think that’s a good goal for Apple to shoot for. Or at least, start with Michigan and work up from there.
Ars Technica quotes Steve Jobs:
“At this historic milestone, we want to thank music lovers everywhere for making iPod such an incredible success” said Steve Jobs in a statement. Apple also says that the iPod has sparked an “ecosystem of over 4,000 accessories” made just for the iPod.
I account for 3 of the units personally (and tons of accessories that no longer work with the new model of iPod) — a third-gen iPod, a Photo iPod and my current video model.
And I’m sure I’ll be jonesing for an iPhone and a high-capacity widescreen/touchscreen iPod when the time comes later this year.
**Gulp** … There goes another $1000 of my future unborn kid’s college fund.
