There’s now over 30-million iPod users. A year ago, it was only 6-million iPod users.
How many are Mac vs. Windows? Where do you carry your iPod? Pocket? Purse? Your sock? Which iPod do you have? Our iPod User Poll has all the answers.
Apple’s hottest product the past few years has been the iPod. Over 30-million have been sold in three years. Some stock analysts say Apple could sell 10-million iPods this holiday shopping quarter.
The Cupertino, CA Mac maker now sells many times more iPods than Macs. The company is ready for the holiday shopping season in 2005 with good stocks of iPod nano, 30 and 60 gigabyte iPods.
A year ago Apple launched the iPod photo and the Special Edition U2 iPod. See how fast things change.
Plus, the iTunes Music Store is now open for business in more countries than ever in Europe and elsewhere; now in Japan, and nearly two dozen countries total.
Apple touts an 80-percent market share for legal music downloads, a 90-percent market share for hard drive-based portable music players, and a 60-percent market share for flash-based players.
When did you get your first iPod? What model was it? Are you an early adopter and bought a 5 gigabyte model? Did you wait until the iPod mini hit the streets? What model iPod do you have?
Of course, the important question of the day is, where do you wear or carry your iPod? Apple provided iPod-carrying socks last year (not to wear, just to hold the iPods).
This year we’ll be lucky to be able to buy an iPod as supplies are ‘constrained.’
Do you simply clip your iPod to a belt or your pants/slacks at the waist? Do you tuck your iPod into your pocket? Or your purse/handbag? Is it inside your backpack?
Finally, are you basically a Mac and iPod user, or a Windows PC and iPod user (which do you use the most? Mac or Windows)?
Those are the hot questions for our Maca360 reader poll. It’s the holiday shopping season so iPod’s are bound to be hot gift items.
Our iPod User Poll (3 questions) has all the questions. You get to supply a few answers (anonymously, of course). To check out the questions and vote, just click.
As usual, there’s no cost, obligation, or special consideration. You may select more than one answer, but vote only once per day.
I have an iPod photo and haven’t made the jump to an iPod with video. Yet. I’m waiting until after Macworld.

I bought the kids an iPod nano; one white, one black. I still have an iPod photo and haven’t upgraded because it holds everything.

I just picked up a 30 gig iPod with video. Sweeeeeet. Now, if I could just get Shania Twain’s “Man, I Feel Like A Woman!” music video at the iTunes Music Store.

I was expecting Bambi to bring me an iPod nano but she said I deserved better and already had an iPod photo. I told her it’s too heavy (I’ve lost weight, I’m weak, it’s a fashion statement…).
Alex, you should have added one more question: “How many iPods have you purchased?” I know plenty of people who buy new ones and give away old ones.
