Poll Results: I Saw, I Paid, iPod -- Last week brought Apple's announcement of the iPod portable music player and was followed immediately by criticism that the $400 price tag was too high for what the device does. TidBITS readers tend to agree, with less than a quarter of respondents in our poll saying that they would seriously consider paying $400 or more for an iPod. But Apple's design efforts didn't go unnoticed - 40 percent of respondents would consider the iPod at $300, which is still costlier than the competition, though another 28 percent weren't interested unless it cost around $200. The upcoming holiday shopping season should provide a sense of whether or not Apple has overestimated the price people are willing to pay. [ACE]
