Nike+iPod runners log over 1 million miles

Nike announced today that more than 1 million miles have been logged by runners using the Nike+iPod Sport Kit in just 10 weeks since Nike and Apple launched the product. Nike noted that this milestone is the equivalent to circling the world more than 40 times. Nike also said it is continuing to expand its line of Nike+ product offerings and plans to add functionality on, including a route finder so runners can easily map and share their favorite running routes. In October, Nike+ will launch in more markets in Europe, including France, Spain, Italy, Germany and The Netherlands, as well as Japan and Australia. Apple CEO Steve Jobs said last week that over 450,000 Nike+iPod Sport Kits have been sold.

People in 3rd world countries run barefoot don’t they?  I heard apple/nike are in the process of making a sensor that attatches with duct tape.

A million miles?  Big whoop.  If you figure 20 miles a week (low for a serious runner), that’s 200 miles per person for ten weeks.  Only need a whopping 5000 runners for that to add up to a million miles.

Justin, honestly, I don’t like your comment regarding filfret’s post.  I don’t think it’s right to ridicule people from third world countries.  I came from a third world country and I am offended by your comment.  If he can buy an ipod then he can certainly buy a footwear.

1,000,000 miles with 450,000 sold is roughly 2 miles per person. Not exactly stellar.

Thanks MV for the defense… My country’s a 3rd world country not because we are poor it’s just that graft and corruption is just getting the best of us(our politicians)... We’re not exactly helpless. we still get to have luxuries now and then. mines apple(and i’m working my butt for it, unlike my country’s politicians who get their luxuries from my (and others) taxes).

Please refrain from showing how much education you received and how much love was given to you by your parents.

Off with those ignorant comments.Coming from a 3rd world country doesn’t make them lesser of a human.
