10 years ‘all’ your music in your pocket

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

The first iPod showed up in stores exactly 10 years ago today, can you believe that?? It seems that it has been around forever!

Take a few minutes to watch the original product announcement, it brings back good Stevenote memories:

An interesting quote from a New York Times analyst in 2001: ”It’s a nice feature for Macintosh users, But to the rest of the Windows world, it doesn’t make any difference.”. Well, by now we that the iPod made a HUGE difference, it changed the way we listened to music and put an entire industry upside-down!

And consider this; the form factor, specifically the width is pretty much matching the iPhone 4(S)…design and success apparently did not come out of the blue, eh?
