iPod sales slacking

Apple's success with the iPod has hurt itself -- there's no one left to buy the dang things:

The iPod, the digital music player beloved of everyone from Coldplay's Chris Martin to President George Bush, is in danger of losing its sheen. Sales are declining at an unprecedented rate. Industry experts talk of a 'backlash' and of the iPod 'wilting away before our eyes'. Most disastrously, Apple's signature pocket device with white earphones may simply have become too common to be cool.

Maybe Hopefully this will be the final nail in the Mac coffin. I can't stand those things, and to see them still around because of a completely unrelated device really irks me. Apple can't live on iPod sales alone (or iMacs for that matter).
