10 years of the Apple iPod
Little did we know it at the time, but when it first went on sale on 10 November 2001, Apple's funny little white music-playing gadget was about to change the way music was made, listened to, sold and shared for evermore.
Most of us have probably owned a few iPods. Sure, many of us have music-playing smartphones these days, yet it still seems preferable to keep our portable digital music collections together on a separate iPod.
"As a family we've owned pretty much every model of iPod," my geeky computer pal Stuart told me recently. "The good (touch, classic, nano (1st, 3rd, 4th gen), shuffle (3rd gen), the bad (shuffle 1st gen) and the ugly (nano 2nd gen - the square one)."
So, as we celebrate 10 years of Steve Jobs' finest device, what have been your own iPod memories over the last decade?
Bought an i-Pod classic, last year in the USA. Brilliant sound, Brilliant concept. Better than any Music machine than that I have ever had. Wouldnt be without it. Only got 9000 songs on it so far, but I am really trying to push it to its Max. Anybody done that yet.!!!?
^ I love my square nano! Beats a rectangle anyday! =)
My first iPod, was Nano 2nd generation and I had it for a few good years (I still have it), then I got the iPod touch 4th generation, it was amazing and finally I got the iPhone 4, and I totally love that phone! And that's coming from a person who had a Blackberry for nearly a year and half :-) THANKS APPLE!
