    Interesting figures!

    Interesting figures! I believe Sony is credited with selling around 175 million Walkmans although I don't know when they stopped counting or whether that figure included things like Discmans and Minidisc players. Guess they figure by 2007, Apple may sell 100million any Ghostbusters fan would say..."That's a big twinkie!"
