Analyst says iPods very popular with teens

MacMinute reports “Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said today that based on a survey of 600 teenagers, Apple’s iPod is dominating “mindshare and market share.” Munster said in a research note that of all the high school students surveyed, 16 percent currently own an iPod and 24 percent plan to buy an iPod within the next year. Munster also noted that the iPod ranked fourth on the teens’ holiday wish list—behind clothes, money, and a car—even though the iPod was not an answer option and had to be written in as a response.”

I love the fact that a company needed to pay an analyst hundreds maybe even thousands of dollars to do a study that i could have done.  Howcome I always get the short end of the stick?

LET’S DO THE RIGHT THING HERE AS A GROUP.  NO ONE POST ANYMORE RESPONSES TO THIS SILLY ARTICLE THAT SO STATED THE OBVIOUS IT DOESN’T DESERVE ANY FURTHER CREDENCE.

READ THE ARTICLE, BUT DO NOT POST A RESPONSE.  THIS SITE DESERVES TO BE A SOURCE FOR MORE GROUNDBREAKING OR RELEVANT NEWS THAN ANYTHING IN THIS ARTICLE PRESENTS.

Quote: “iPod ranked fourth on the teens’ holiday wish list—behind clothes, money, and a car—even though the iPod was not an answer option and had to be written in as a response.”

I thought that last part was pretty amazing. If someone is just filling out a survey and that wasn’t even a choice, but a write-in came in fourth behind those VERY popular choices, that’s cool. Maybe this just amazed me because I’m old.

That’s really cool too, i think, the part about it having to be written in.

Ipods are also big hits among humans, as opposed to primates and / or human-cyborg hybrids.
