10th Anniversary Of The Apple iPod [VIDEO]

It’s hard to believe that the iPod from Apple, Inc. has been around 10 years. The official anniversary date is October 23.

It wasn’t the first portable digital device available to play music and audio. There were about three others on the market. At the time, many people didn’t find them user friendly. Then along came the iPod. Relatively small in size, these little hand held boxes could hold about a lot of songs. Actually compared to the sizes of players today, they were pretty big. In all honesty, the original iPod is still pretty compact.

Since then, there have been several different models and updates of the iPod have been released. The iPod Touch, iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano, iPod Mini and the iPod Photo, just to name a few. Don’t forget about the different generations of the various iPods, too. I think Richie Phillips has had them all at one time or another.

When I was doing my research about the iPod, I found something on Hypebot.comSony has decided to phase out the Cassette Walkman on the tenth anniversary of the iPod. I agree with the one sentence from the article: “I had not realized that they still made them.”

Steve Jobs introduced the iPod at an event in 2001.
