iPod sales down? Nah.

The Macalope points out that iPod sales are up by 50% this quarter (21 million units), but that growth is down from 60% compared to the same quarter last year. Then he adds:

But when the last people on the planet who still don’t have an iPod are either Amish or Jim Alchin, it starts getting a little difficult.

There are gems in the comments too:

Splashman about the Zune:

A friend of mine claimed that his cousin’s sister’s brother-in-law’s nephew had one. Then again, my friend is a fisherman, so he’s prone to exaggeration. Perhaps the nephew had only seen one.

Huxley on the same subject:

Steve Balmer said that they’ve captured 20-25% of the high-end music player market.

That’s crappy spin, I’d focus on the fact that MS has a de facto monopoly on the brownish-green high-end music player segment of the market.
