One of the comments on the site was: I’d like to see that contrasted with iPods sold. So I thought I’d take some data points from the web and play a little.
Note: when I first posted this, I posted a bit of a rough graph that just showed iPod sales … which means that visitors would have to look at both this site and the one mentioned above to compare.
So now I’ve put together a graph that shows both iTunes and iPod sales on a single graph:
Be aware that while the iPod y axis goes up by fours, the iTunes axis goes up by tens. It was the only way I could get both datasets on one graph (that fits on this web page without scrolling!)
Here’s the data that I found (all over the place online):
- Jan 11 2006 42 million
- Nov 29 2005 30 million
- Nov 2 2005 28 milllion
- March 31 2005 15 million
- January 13 2005 10 million
- Jan 6 2004 2 million
- June 1 2003 1 million
- Dec 31 2001 125,000
- Oct 23 2001 0 sold
