100 Million iPods Sold


 Share

Recommended Posts

The first iPod was sold five and a half years ago, in November 2001, and since then Apple has introduced more than 10 new iPod models, including five generations of iPod, two generations of iPod mini, two generations of iPod nano and two generations of iPod shuffle.

The players, along with iTunes and the iTunes online music store, have forever altered the landscape of the music industry and how music lovers acquire, manage and listen to their music.

?At this historic milestone, we want to thank music lovers everywhere for making iPod such an incredible success,? said Steve Jobs, Apple?s CEO. ?iPod has helped millions of people around the world rekindle their passion for music, and we?re thrilled to be a part of that.?

The iPod has also sparked an unprecedented ecosystem of over 4,000 accessories made specifically for the iPod that range from fashionable cases to speaker systems, and more than 70 percent of 2007-model US automobiles currently offer iPod connectivity.

?Without the iPod, the digital music age would have been defined by files and folders instead of songs and albums,? said John Mayer, GRAMMY Award-winning singer-songwriter and guitarist. ?Though the medium of music has changed, the iPod experience has kept the spirit of what it means to be a music lover alive."

Every iPod sold by Apple features seamless integration with iTunes 7. Meanwhile, the iTunes Store features the world?s largest catalog with over five million songs, 350 television shows and over 400 movies. It has sold over 2.5 billion songs, 50 million TV shows and over 1.3 million movies, making it the world?s most popular online music,SOURCE:store.

Woot!

My 3G iPod has been through the air (killing off 16GB), dropped countless times onto hard concrete (scratch-tastic!) and it still works like a charm. <3

Hurray for Apple.

100 million. That's alot of overpriced mp3 players. Oh well, I guess my 4gen is on that list. It hardly holds a charge, but still works.

Whoa 100 million! Not too bad Apple. (Y)

I enjoyed using my iPod 4g 40GB and currently I'm a proud owner of a black iPod 5g 30GB. :D

I enjoyed my 5th gen 30gb iPod Video for 1 month before I sold it. I defied the mainstream and purchased a Zune and couldn't be any happier.
