The Inquirer asks if the iPod is a tool to sell Macs. Personally, my tumble down the slippery slope of Apple started with an iPod; once I'd had the delight of opening that fantastic packaging and the wonderful experience of using the accursed wobble box, I was absolutely sold on Apple - and it was only a matter of time before I cracked and started ABSOLUTELY NEEDING a PowerBook.

I suspect I'm not the only person who's been hooked in this way.
