100 million served April 16, 2007

Posted by reverseengineer in iPods, Microsoft.

Apple came out last week with a statement that the company has sold one hundred million iPods since they introduced it five-and-a-half years ago in 2001. Man, that’s a big-ass number! Write it out longhand and it looks even more impressive: 100,000,000 iPods. So if each one had a pair of earphones that came with it, that’s 200,000,000 single earbuds! And 100,000,000 mini-stereo plugs! And 100,000,000 free stickers! And…

Meanwhile Microsoft predicts they’ll sell one million Zunes by June, six months after release.  Judging by that rate, in the same amount of time (June 2012) they’d have sold 11 million of them brown things.
