    I have friend that works at CompUSA that told me they sold 100 iPod's last week and that they are having trouble keeping them in stock.

    A friend at BestBuy's told me that he sold 30 iPod's last week and they are really flying off the shelves.

    Both my friends says the most popular model is the 10GB iPod.

    With iPod sales going this well..I wonder how much of the MP3 player market will Apple have by Jan of next yr??

    When I asked about the Dell or Napster player they said they have sold couple but most parents come in asking for the iPod and not about the other players.

    I guess this can only mean more folks will be buying more iTunes Music.

    Not working in a store that sells them (or, *cough* at all), I can't give any numbers, but I see them a lot on my campus. More than any other mp3 player, and roughly the same amount as cd players.

    I just got my 2nd one, a 10 GB dockable so I can record lectures :D. And when I say just got, I mean that literally. I've had it out of the box for roughly an hour.

    I saw a couple people with them. They seemed content. That's two for a town of 20000. Oh well.

    Nik. how often do you see most gadgets? At home, a town of 50k, I don't see them much unless its mine or one of my friends after I convince them to buy one. Similarly i don't see many laptops or anything becasue its not that type of situation. But on a campus of around 40k I see one everyday usually more than one

    The only time I've seen an iPod is at an Apple reseller. And that's in an area of about 15 million. ;)

    I have never seen anyone using one outside of an Apple store.

    In my office in London I know of at least 5 people who have iPods. They are also common to see about town, especially on the tube or train.

    It's the distinctive headphones that enable you to spot them.

    I'm still looking for one... maybe soon I'll see someone else with one.

    At my school I think my girlfriend and I are the only ones with iPods..but I could be wrong.

    hmmm whats weird is that I have white earbud headphones but I don't use the apple ones, I have nicer ones but people still assume I'm using an ipod because of the white earbuds hehe

    where the concrete to dirt ratio is better
    I usually see 2 or so on the way to the El, which is two and a half blocks from my flat in Chicago. See them all the time on the El, and when I am walking around town, and those are just the people with the apple earphones. There are a TON in Chicago.

    i see a few more everyday at my university, from gen 1's to gen 3's; although there are more of the three's probably due to the new ad campaign.
