Apple co-founder thinks iPod has about run its course. No way Jose!

Appleinsider has posted an article with the headline "Apple co-founder believes iPod has about run its course". The article says that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said "The iPod has sort of lived a long life at number one,". Steve Wozniak also said "Things like that, if you look back to transistor radios and Walkmans, they kind of die out after a while."
". He said this in a interview to The Telegraph.

Can anybody believe that? This man WOZ with all due respect has completely gone out of touch with the industry specifically the MP3 players market. The iPod Touch is the 3 best selling top rated MP3 and all are completely sold out.

This article triggered off some interesting comments from the forum users:
alpha10711 says "The iPod market may be "mature" but it is far from over.... Each day there are thousands of kids reaching the age where they want to download and carry music around. Then there are international markets to be reached. Then there are the existing iPod owners who need to replace their units or want the new, improved model. So the iPod market isn't going away anytime soon. This almost sounds like sour grapes from Woz."

anantksundaram says "There is no way that the iPod will 'run its course' -- just as television sets or automobiles or sunglasses will not -- but rather, it'll evolve, get better, and perhaps be integrated with a whole lot of things that we use..."

fraklinc notes, "I like Woz but come on does he always got to throw something negative about Apple everytime he talks about it, sure the original ipods will die out but the touch will take it's place, just look at best buy.com for example, the 3 best selling MP3s are all iPod touch and are all sold out"

Matthew Yohe says, "Sure, as a music player, many many people do have a flavor of iPod. But the market is wide open again for the Touch/iPhone platform. Getting a Touch in everyone's hands will send a lot more business Apple's way than music ever did."
