If I was asked wether I'm planning to buy an iPod in the next 12 months I'd probably say no too, however as soon as Apple comes out with a new snarky iPod I would most definitely change my mind. When it comes to devices like the iPod people's plan-to-purchase is usually a week to a month not 12!! 12 months is more for real estate.
How many of "These" people are there in the world? Seems like more then what ever number they have come up with! If 92% of the folks in this category owned iPods, wouldn't the number of iPods sold, be MUCH greater?
For me it's all in who they spoke with.
Students at local colleges? How about students at local high schools, middle school, elementary schools, hell day cares at this point in time.
Now let's ask them in each of the 50 states I'm sure the numbers will vary greatly.
state with high unemployment will look much worst then states were unemployment isn't as bad at this time. And I agree with the other person ask this question and tell me the numbers:
"If (WHEN) Apple comes out with the next killer iPod, will you likely be buying one, two or more"? I think we all know what the answer would be.
