Father of invention: “The iPod is like a cigarette pack for those addicted to music instead of tobacco.”

Very apt.

Of course, if you want to grab one at the last minute you are probably out of luck. John Lewis reported yesterday that they have sold out of them. Understandable as approximately 1.79 iPods were sold every minute in fiscal 2003. Apple said it sold 939,000 iPods for US$345 million in net sales this past year.
