### The Tao of Mac

• OK, so we know the MP3 player market is not merely aflame but also the best current example of Darwinian evolution (with a few little-publicized mass extinctions) and that any figures quoted as part of market projections are essentially meaningless, but iPod sales figures are nothing short of amazing. 807.000 iPods in three months is roughly 9000/day, or six per minute. Anything that sells one unit every ten seconds is worth noting. More so if it costs at least US$300 (remember the iPod mini is - besides sold out - only$50 less).
