100 million iPods sold

There a .8 billion radios in the states thats a fact It's a thing we can't deny.

Apple has sold its 100 millionth iPod, five years and five months since the music players first went on sale in November 2001. By comparison, it took Sony 14 years to sell 100m iPods Walkmans, of course. The now ubiquitous players have a 74% share of the MP3 player market in the US, but sales are lower outside the country with just a 50% share in Japan and 60% in Australia. The iTunes store has sold 2.5bn songs to date - a curiously low 25 songs per iPod. (Wall Street Journal via Guardian Organ Grinder)
