100 million iPods sold

Apple has announced today that the 100 millionth iPod has been sold. Love it or hate it, there is no mistaking that this is the best selling music gadget since the days of the Walkman. Like John Mayer said, and I concur, if it weren’t for the iPod, I probably wouldn’t have hardly as many albums as I have:

“Without the iPod, the digital music age would have been defined by files and folders instead of songs and albums,” said John Mayer, GRAMMY Award-winning singer-songwriter and guitarist.

All of you who witnessed the birth of the MP3 format, and the very first MP3 players certainly remember how we used to get our music. Even though it costs a bit more to listen to music without having the RIAA knocking at your door, you probably know and listen to more songs than ever thanks to the way that iTunes, and the iPod organize and let you purchase music, which motivates you to acquire the whole album.

I own an iPod, and it’s one of the best gadgets I’ve ever bought, and the one I use the most, just after my computer of course. And I wouldn’t trade it for any other MP3 player on the market, unless it was a newer version iPod. There is no mistaking that it’s slightly more expensive than most of it’s competitors. But I don’t regret any extra dollar (or in my case, euro) that I spent on it instead of one of it’s competitors.
