Of course, on Amazon the iPod Touch (both models) are outselling the Zune 80 - consistently.

Uh, yeah, like 100% more consistent. I tried to buy the Zune 80 today on Amazon.  It wouldn't let me. You wanna know what it said? It aint out yet. W-T-F!

Seems like CNet would be slightly less reliable than Amazon, where people are actually speaking with their wallets.

Really? Just to test I went to Amazon to check how far I can go through the pre-order process and it let me. I just didn't input any payment and exited. Glitch?

The iPod Touch, which was only available as pre-order for a few weeks after the announcement, was up near the top for its entire pre-order period.

Zune 80 is clearly being purchased (pre-ordered) since it's on the list of top sellers. Its rank is relative to its demand.

I found it odd that C|Net's homepage listing for "Most Wanted Products" shows the top 5 as:

1. Creative Zen
2. iPod Touch
3. PS3
4. Samsung 46" LCD
5. iPhone

But when you click "See all mosted wanted products" it shows the top 5 as follows:

1. Wii
2. HTC Tilt
3. Zune 80GB
4. iPhone
5. PS3

what?  Are they trying to hide the fact that the Zune and Windows Mobile powered Tilt are more wanted than the iPods and iPhones?

Creative Zen...most wanted? Yeah, I wonder how many people besides us tech blogophytes are actually aware of new Zens being released.

I found it odd that C|Net's homepage listing for "Most Wanted Products" shows the top 5 as...

I can't confirm, but it appears that the first page is the current top 5 since it simply reads, "Most Wanted Products." Clicking the link on the other hand leads to a weekly list which gets locked in every 7 days. Oct 7, Oct 14, Oct 21, etc.

My theory is that on Oct 14 the Zune 80 stood at #3 but currently it is not in the top 5. The next weekly top 20 list will be released on Oct 21, until then the list is as of Oct 14.

I'm just guessing but... The new Zunes were released on Oct 3rd and quickly entered the CNet top 20 list. It continued its climb and as of Oct 14th it was #3. It has since declined (or possibly not) - This is very common of early adopter spikes - Sudden rush, followed by a significant slow down, followed by slow gain as the public becomes aware. 

The #1 and #2 top sellers in Amazon Software are Mac OS X Leopard Single and Family pack - again, due to early adopters (Macheads). This will soon subside and Leopard will find its spots somewhere far down the list.

I mean honestly, how many people that "just buy" an MP3 player check CNet, Zune Insider, iLounge or Zunerama. All these stats we point to are pretty much just to entertain ourselves... Smiley

I don't know about your theory because the top 5 list on the home page hasn't changed in the past 4 days.
