The New York Times > Technology > Demand for iPods Leads Big Increase in Profits for Apple

The New York Times > Technology > Demand for iPods Leads Big Increase in Profits for Apple "Apple shipped 876,000 Macintosh computers in the quarter, a 14 percent increase compared with shipments in the quarter a year earlier. But the brightest star was the iPod, the company's portable music player; shipments of iPods nearly tripled, to 860,000.
Mr. Wolf said that Apple's music products had become something of a Trojan horse for the company as the popularity of the iTunes service and the iPod are clearly helping sell Macs. "The Apple Macintosh is starting to be a growth story," he said. "Music is starting to drive Mac sales."

Okay, so maybe Apple found its 10th life...
