writes "Back in 2006, Apple was riding high on the success of its iPod. The gadget accounted for more than 50% of Apple's first-quarter revenue that year as a digital music revolution was in full swing. Now the iconic iPod is an afterthought, bringing in a mere 8% of Apple revenue – and falling fast as other gadgets take over the digital jukebox role on top of many other functions.
The article implies that the iPod is a dying part of the business — I would have liked to see revenues for the iPod from 2006 to today to see if it really is a "dying" line but the question is valid — should Apple drop the iPod and concentrate on the Mac, iPad and iPhone lines?"Link to Original Source
