iPod dominates in February

Apple's iPod continues to , according to TheStreet. In February, Apple's iPod accounted for nearly 90 percent of hard-drve based players sold in the US retail market, according to NPD Group. The same research group also said that the company's flash-based offering, the iPod shuffle, dominated the market with 45 percent of all unit sales in February in the US retail market. "They had a strong February," says Stephen Baker, a hardware analyst with NPD Group. "I expect them to have a pretty strong March, too." The research firm has not yet released its March data. The report says that the "halo effect" will continue to drive Mac sales--especially with the release of the Mac mini and the release of Mac OS X Tiger yesterday: "Bumping up market share by just 1 percentage point or so could add billions to the company's revenue -- and likely millions to the bottom line."

    curses!

    you mean the Sony 40GB-HD-MS-FU-BS isn't going to be an iPod killer???

    does this mean I'm still stupid for owning an iPod, like Napster says?

    marketshare

    yes bringing up marketshare by 1% could result in millions in sales...but why look on the bright side, pollyanna.

    its going to take mult millions in sales, just to improve marketshare by a lousy 1%


    he,he,he...I'm just joshin' I think apple is poised for a great year in mac sales, and I'm glad, because I mostly am interested in apple because of mac os x, I'm not as a big a fan of the ipod, although I do own one, I still want a media player that does video.
