Taxing the iPod economy II

I wrote about Apple’s first moves towards taxing the iPod peripheral market earlier this year.

Turns out the market is now worth over $300 million. Over 1000 devices interoperate with, improve, add functionality to, or otherwise interface with iPods.

And this is just the beginning.

But I still think that Apple should go softly in their attempts to benefit from this huge market. Let this whirlwind grow: it feeds a virtuous cycle that promotes more iPod and iTunes Music Store sales.
