How common are iPods where you live?

I see them everywhere in my high school. Most of them are minis, though. There are a couple of 3Gs and 4Gs around, though.

Seriously, you need a machete to cut through the white cords in my hallways.

How often do you see them in your school/office/place of residence/town?

I live in a town of about 30,000 people. I have never seen another iPod. Even at work I'm the only iPod owner. I'm sure that there must be some other owners out there though!

When I got my 3G 15GB back in Sept. 2003, I hardly ever saw anyone else with an iPod. Now I see them a lot more often. Usually I see one or two people on the bus with iPods. Hard to miss with the white earphones.

I was in NYC in May 2004 and I saw iPods everywhere! My sister and I couldn't get over how common they were there.

When I visited New York last year I counted 19 iPod's in one day. In Chicago and around school I have seen about 4 or 5. One kid was listening to his mini while the baseball coaching was talking to us and he got in trouble. It was pretty cool.

I live in a college town so iPods and other DAPs are common as dirt. iPods seem to be about 60%-70% of the DAP players, which is about what you'd expect.

Oddly (to me), as I've seen other people note, CD (mp3 CD?) players are still very common which completely escapes me. I've had a perfectly functioning portable CD player since about 1990, and I haven't used it for anything since about 1994. Just too big and clumsy. It wasn't until I got my iPod mini that I went nuts with listening to music on the go again.

on campus, every other headphone cord is white (and I'm sure a lot of the players behind the black corrds are iPod as well). In my hometown of Toronto, iPod are everywhere, especially downtown.

If I lived in any of your towns, you would not think that I had an iPod either, since I hate the apple buds. I'm sure the better question is how many people use apples buds to listen to music, since that's what you are basing your survey on. Not everyone wants to broadcast the fact that they have an iPod tucked away somewhere. After a certain age (High School) it's not really a status symbol. I have seen plenty at ski mountains and on the subway / walking in midtown in NYC.




Snowboarding . . . it's not a sport, it's a way of life!

I wouldn't call iPods 'common', but lately over the last few months there has a lot more iPods I've seen around where I live, mainly at school... all of the people who are buying them now pretty much all use the white earbuds so they can show how 'cool' and 'exclusive' they are !

I see ipods everywhere in my town. All over the colleges, the skateparks, bus stops, and all over downtown, all day ipods.
