Soon, on Pay-Per-View, Bill and Steve head-to-head, redux. Bill Gates recently told a German newspaper he doesn't believe Apple's iPod will maintain its dominant position in the MP3 player market over the long term. "I don't think the success of the iPod can continue in the long term, however good Apple may be," Gates told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. "I think you can draw parallels here with the computer -- here, too, Apple was once extremely strong with its Macintosh and graphic user interface, like with the iPod today, and then lost its position." Currently, around 70% of all digital music players sold are iPods; Apple has sold a total of 15 million of the portable players.
