The gear:

	• Nintendo Wii (released November 19, 2006) took 13 days to reach 1 million units sold. 
	• Nintendo DS (released November 21, 2004) took 15 days to reach 1 million units sold. 
	• Apple iPad (released April 3, 2010) took 28 days to reach 1 million units sold. 
	• Apple iPhone (releasedJune 29, 2007) took 74 days to reach 1 million units sold.

Among the fast-growing apps, all faster than the gear (no surprise):  Napster, Skype, iLike, and Farmville.
