iTunes' long march to market share | The Register :

"The iTunes Music Store [ITMS] buyer buys 25 songs in the first year, 15 in the second year, and in the third year, the battery has died, so you have to go out and buy a new iPod. And you paid $300 for that machine,"

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

As a father of (still, just) teenage kids, It makes me really quite angry that a $300 device that should be a consumer durable is now a consumer disposable. It's one thing throwing away a $50 cassette player because it's broken, it's quite another throwing away a $300 device. "oh, well, never mind, I'll get another for my birthday"
