    Was just watching the Macworld Keynote Address by Steve Jobs. And he went over just how successful the iPod has been in the last year.

    iPod's sold during the 2004 holiday quarter - 4.5 million
    iPod's sold during the year 2004 - 8.2 million
    Sales have grown 500%.
    Over 400 accessories available for the iPod's by Apple, and 3rd party manufacturers.

    In Jan. 2004 iPod controlled 31% of the market of ALL MP3 players. 62% was controlled by Flash MP3 players, the other "iPod wannabe's" controlled 7%.

    iPod mini was brought in to go after the HIGH END flash players.

    Now in Jan. 2005, iPod NOW controls 65% of the total market share of ALL MP3 players!!! Flash players are down to 29%...and the others...6%.

    And now with the iPod Shuffle....watch that Flash market share drop a lot more!

    No other player comes close!

    Also...last year, BMW added iPod adapters (as an option) from the factory in their cars. And now...Mercedes, Volvo, Nissan, Scion, Alfa Romeo, and Ferrari have jumped on to do the same thing.

    And also...the iTunes/iPod interface, and client is being adapted for certain Motorola Cell Phones. Browse and listen to MP3's on your cell phone, just like your iPod. The phones are due out this spring.

    I'll sell my brand new 15GB IPOD for 175 shipped to the United States. No need for it, and both my sisters, mother, father and pet dog already have one.

    I almost bought one but the sound quality + volume level sucked, and the battery sucked . It's a shame how inferior products can have so much success with just marketing while better players are ignored :sad2:
