  1. They sell HP iPods at Costcos – what more can you ask.

    Fact is dudes – it’s all about getting as many Pods into the punters hands. Apple will use any distribution channel they can find and HP is a biggie.

    If HP sell 500K to mostly a market that Apple doesn’t have access to, that’s significant.

  2. And Holy, just think. IF the iPod ever loses steam, THEN they can come up with their own thing OR license someone else! I’m sure HP looked at the balance sheet and realized they couldn’t say NO to dollars, regardless of WHAT they thought of Carly. What’s the use of INVENTing the wheel, when there’s already a fully functional car out there raring to go? Why should a computer company be making a Music Player anyway (Dell DJ)?
