Maybe its just me, but the Apple hardware news – the big switch to Intel chips – has left me a tad wanting for something with a bit more oomph. The bit which totally rocked, and was the real news in the keynote was the ongoing sales strength of iPod, iTunes and now the iVideo sales.

I’m really pleased to announce that last quarter we sold 14 million iPods .. that is over a hundred every minute, 24/7 throughout the quarter. And it still wasn’t enough. We’ve now sold over 42 million iPods — as you can see the curve is going up again …. have sold on iTunes over 850 million songs … a billion in the next weeks …. market share continues to be very strong – 83 percent. Since we launched on October 12th we have sold over 8 million videos. For the first time last week we added some sports. For the first time with ABC and ESPN we put up some Bowl games.”

Full keynote notes @ Engadget. More thoughts from various different folks here!. Business 2 Reports!

Carlo Longino: I find the lack of support for mobile data disappointing. It would have been great to see an option for built-in EV-DO, UMTS/HSDPA or even EDGE modems.

  1. Yeah… We needed to see a tablet or a better Tivo/Media Center thingy. Perhaps later this year.

  2. Om, I’m just curious to get feedback from another discerning Powerbook G4 buyer. I, like yourself, recently purchased a widescreen 1.6GHz 15″ PB with 7200 RPM 100GB HDD and, to be honest, I’m glad I did.

    While it might’ve been nice to purchase a next-generation Macintel edition Powerbook with a built-in camera I’d never use, I can’t help but think “Where the hell is the PCMCIA slot?” I mean, an express 34 card slot? Goes well with the euqally unuseable 2nd generation Firewire800 port, but come on. What use would this be? The lack of a PCMCIA slot in the current market is ridiculous.

    I’m currently connected to this site via my Vodafone-issued Globetrotter UMTS PC card. Thia feat would be impossible on a new MacBook. I would be forced to hang-up my phone, force a hasty Bluetooth connection with my laptop, and pray for the best.

    I’m not certain what your first reaction to the new unit is, but mine is one of gratitude that I purchased by Powerbook in December rather than January.

  3. i cannot agree more – the lack of PC card or even WAn support is a bit baffling. i am not sure if the phone + macbook combination will be good enough for folks, because the batteries drain like a bitch.

  4. [...] What media product was purchased over 100 times a minute in Q4 of 2005. If you said the IPOD than go to the head of the line. Full stats here Hat Tip To Om Malik [...]

  5. Yep, Jobs surprises us once again .. but can this growth really continue? Are there really 60,000,000 in the world people who can afford to buy an iPod every year?

    Probably not, but I said the same thing in July 05 and look where it got me. People who bought AAPL stock back then are now laughing all the way to the bank.

  6. Mac faithful rejoice (and Mac faithful rejoiced)

    In today’s IT Blogwatch, we look at what’s new at MacWorld. Not to mention this day in history (in MacWorld terms)…
    No sooner do we close the door on CES than MacWorld begins. The big Jobs unveiling as reported by Tom Krazit was "A new laptop …

  7. [...] The sentiment for 2006 was actually better, even though the products announced at Macworld were kinda expected and lukewarm. The iPod powered Apple in 2005. The stock gained 12.13% in from the third-week-of-December to Macworld time frame. [...]

  8. 참 좋은 일입니다

    어제는 지나갔기 때문에 좋고,
    내일은 올 것이기 때문에 좋고,
    오늘은
    무엇이든 할 수 있기 때문에 좋습니다.

    나는 어제를 아쉬워하거나
    내일을 염려하기보다는
    주어진 오늘을 사랑하고 기뻐합니다.

    오늘 안에 있는 좋은 것을 찾고
    받아들이고 내일을 준비하는 것이
    얼마나 즐거운지 모릅니다.

    하루하루 새로운
    아침이 주어지는 것은
    새 기회의 기쁨을
    날마다 누리라는 뜻입니다.

    오늘 안에 있는 좋은 것이
    어떤 것인지는 누구보다
    자기 자신이 잘 알고 있습니다.

    어떻게 하면 하루가
    좋아지는 지도 다 알고 있습니다.

    어제는 오늘을 소중히
    여기고 기뻐하리라는 마음입니다.
