So there is a "Music"-menu that wasn't there before. Since the iPod is about music, there shouldn't be the need for a Music-menu at all, unless they are preparing for other menus like - "Photos", "Videos" etc...
I'm not crazy! At least I don't think so
Music has been a large part of my life since high school (around 1967). I grew up with The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix. I was late to the CD-era, but started buying CDs around 1990. Today I have about 2000 LPs and 2500 CDs. I hear music all the time (background), and listen to music (concentrating on the music) at least 2 hours every day. As I write this I'm playing Fairport Convention (one of my favourite bands from...
And how big marketshare do they have in the markets where they compete. Apple doesn't compete in the market for cash-registers, but they are also counted in the PC marketshare as they are usually cheap PCs.
That is much more meaningful. Harley-Davidson has a very small share of the motor vehicle sales. In the truck-category they have 0% market share (as do Ferarri) since they don't compete in that market. Still - trucks are also motor vehicles.
There must be something wrong with the IDC numbers that were just released. IDC says that Apple shipped 1 675 000 machines in 2003.

How trustworthy are IDC's numbers?
I have about 2400 CDs organized in 4513 albums (1159 artists). It is difficult to tell exactly how many CDs there are - I haven't counted them for a while .
It is mostly classical music (a lot of opera) - around 2000 CDs, with the rest pop and rock.
Not really. It is almost instantaneous in all cases (except when the disk needs to spin up). I don't touch type, so I watch the keyboard as I type. When I look up at the screen everything has been found.
When I browse by artist or genre there is a short lag, but not more than 1 second from I click on the artist until the list is shown.
The library is on an external 250 GB Maxtor FireWire disk. The machine is a 17" PB.
