So I watched the webcast and I started thinking... Apple has 70 some % marketshare of legal music downloads. Apple has 31 % of MP3 player market. So to gain more market share, Apple tries to penetrate the so called other 30 some % of mid range players by introducing iPod mini. IMO,I doubt this will succeed in gaining marketshare as many more high end players are available and are cheaper (in more ways than one) and people are starting to take notice. However, as more non-iPod owners become more exposed to downloadable music wont this drive DOWN Apples marketshare in music downloads? Again, I assume this...as I would find it hard to believe that iPods outsell all other mid range (say 1-10 GB) MP3 Players on the market. Why doesn't apple try to build on the success of iTMS and support other players? I would imagine that would be a better long term decision as it would open up everyones eyes to iTunes. Of course to make your product the best, its easy to ONLY support YOUR OWN hardware. By in my eyes, iTMS is software and it shouldn't be tied to a certain hardware platform (ie iPod) To me this is history is in the process of repeating itself and Apple will lose marketshare...again. I guess we can wait and see, and HOPEFULLY, I am totally off Any thoughts? Am I just ranting about nothing?
