On October 12--just 19 days ago--Apple introduced its new video iPod, and announced they would also be selling ABC program content along with music videos and short films.
There was a fair amount of skepticism among critics as to how much interest consumers would have in a digital music player that could also play videos on a 2.5 inch color screen.
CNET News reports that, yesterday, Apple announced they have sold over one million videos in the 19 days since it introduced the video iPod. Yahoo reported that this news sent Apple Computer shares up almost 5 percent to $57.10.
Yahoo also indicated that "Apple is in discussions to lure more U.S. television networks to provide programming."
