One Hundred Million

eWeek: Apple Inc. has sold its 100 millionth iPod in just over five years, boasting on Monday that the digital device was “the fastest selling music player in history” that appeals to both young and old.

Wow. That’s a lot of iPods. I mean, a whole lot of iPods. I came across an interesting comment on Slashdot about this: Let’s put this in perspective. Not all of these buyers were American, and many of them have probably owned more than one iPod, but the population of the United States is slightly over 300 million. And Apple has apparently sold 100 million.

Yeah. It’s official. That’s a lot.
