Dell's Rollins dismisses iPod as a 'fad' | CNET News.com: "'It's interesting the iPod has been out for three years and it's only this past year it's become a raging success,' said Rollins, who is also Dell's president. 'Well, those things that become fads rage, and then they drop off. When I was growing up there was a product made by Sony called the Sony Walkman--a rage, everyone had to have one. Well, you don't hear about the Walkman anymore. I believe that one-product wonders come and go. You have to have sustainable business models, sustainable strategy.'"
