The ipod is Dead.

This link talks about why the days of the dedicated music player have come and gone. Great write-up to go through.

Top messages:

  • Sales of ipod as mp3 player is on decline. Sales of ipod as multi function device (video recorder,wi-fi device) is on the rise
  • Despite “feature creep”, people still like to have more features. Infact, iphone is the biggest source of images on Flickr
  • Apple hasn’t proven that it has any legal right to restrict third-party components from connecting to its software eg Palm.
