I happened to run into someone that had an iPod while I was at a pre-screening of a movie. Just to get things straight I do think that the price is justified, it is a quality machine, and that it is a good move for Apple. Apple products are for active lifestyles, which is the main reason for the 20 minutes of skip protection the iPod offers.
From the accounts I’ve read, the Ford Pinto was built to some interesting and arbitrary specifications imposed on engineers by top management. It was supposed to weigh under 2,000 pounds and cost less than 2,000 dollars. Corners were cut and that model became a black mark in Ford history.
I suggest a similarly arbitrary set of specs for the next iMac. It should weigh under 10 lbs and cost less than $1,000. How’s them apples! Sounds much more Zen-like than the current 35 lbs./$800. I think the price increase might pose a problem for sales, but don’t underestimate the appeal of a product that seems so right.
