Since its introduction in 2001, more than 100 million iPods have been sold. In the process, Apple’s compact digital media player has revitalized that company’s fortunes, helped to reshape popular culture, and (along with iTunes) almost single-handedly destroyed the traditional-model recording industry. Sure, there are other compact players out there – some marginally successful, too – but the iPod is king, with over 70 percent share of the market. It’s an icon, an all-purpose synonym for any product with similar functionality: Much as one might say, “Do you have any Scotch Tape?” or “Pass me a Kleenex,” for most of the world “iPod” = “portable media player” and that’s just all there is to it.
