Steve is back with a new liver. He’s back and his unexpected presence at the Apple event got him a long standing ovation. He mentioned that he now had the liver of a person in their mid-20s who died in a car crash. He talked about the significance of organ donation. He ended by telling everyone to think about organ donation, as it saved his life.
That’s wonderful Steve. But would you create a charity organization for organ failures, do something to encourage more organ donation and set an example. When can we see Steve the philanthropist?
That way Steve you would have put your wealth, creativity, charisma and presence to a great cause.
Steve went on to mention Apple’s great successes:
30 million iPhone have now been sold worldwide in a little over 2 years.
There are now over 75,000 apps in the App Store
There have now been some 1.8 billion App Store downloads
The 3.1 update for iPhone and iPod touch will launch today.
iTunes is now the #1 music retailer in the world
8.5 billion songs have been downloaded from iTunes
There are now 100 M accounts on iTunes, making it one of the largest stores on the web
iTunes 9 is launching today, with a revamped look and feel
An easier way to organize apps on the iPhone and iPod touch
iTunes LPs (this is the “Cocktail” feature)
Apple has sold over 220 million iPods to date
It’s one of the most successful products in history
In the U.S., the iPod has 73.8% market share
The next biggest MP3 player is “other” with 18%
“Microsoft pulling in the rear with just about 1%”
