It’s hard to imagine somebody getting a Dell Jukebox or whatever and going around calling it an iPod outside of anything other than jest.

Of course, I hope the iPod will be around in 10 years, and, in a perfect world, everybody would have one.  But I don’t see “iPod” being the catch-all euphemism for any MP3/music player.  I’m fairly certain that “MP3 Player” has become an acceptable term, and it’s lost much of its geeky-ness.

Yes, but on the streets and with my friends, I hear two things:


I got my mp3 player

&

I got my ipod


So I’d say it’s gotten mass appeal but I agree that it probably wont get the “kleenex” and “q-tip” type of branding at all.
