Apple - Steve Jobs introduces the iPod - 2001

I had to get this posted for the 10th anniversary of the iPod. Amazing! I remember ordering this online the second Jobs announced it. It was ground breaking! I really fell back in love with music in a way that became so much more personal than ever before. Thanks Steve, the ripple goes beyond the sound grooves on vinyl. This was bigger than any number one song could ever achieve. This was earth shattering.

To think for the first 20 minutes of this video, the world didn't even know what an iPod looked like. It's fantastic.
Steve Jobs 2001: "We believe the mac can become the center of your digital lifestyle"  2014: So here I am, sat watching his video on my 27 inch iMac, with my iPhone, and iPad on one side, and my macbook on the other. Great job Steve!
If i just bought a 1000 dollars of apple stocks in those days

Back before this event, the world had no idea how Apple would shape the world. Now here we are, commenting on these videos, most likely on our iPhones and MacBooks

I still use my iPod Classic. The iPod is like my all time favorite electronic. Such a great invention.
Brad Meyer
One time I found my dads old 3rd generation iPod Classic but it doesn’t work.

young Tim Cook at 26:00!
This is the second 14:33 Apple became know to all, other people than the upper middle class.

I guess that's always why they were trying to introduce to next new version of Me to You and that would be Jihyen.

iPod was amazing! I never enjoyed using a mp3 player as much as I did using my Black Nano gen3 8gb. It was more than just a mp3 player, it was aesthetically very pleasing, great functionality, fun to use and it held 8gb of my fav music!!!
Nisson Lee
the ipod is great! THANK YOU STEVE JOBS.!!!!!!!!!!!!
I like the way Steve took it so lightly in the beginning saying "hey we are doing an music player called iPod". Then with all those people like Smash Mouth and Seal coming and saying how great iPod is, it became immediately clear how BIG the deal iPod was. When it is over, Steve left people in awe sitting there and couldn't believe what they just saw, which was a historical product that led to iPhone and iPad and the whole world was changed right there...

Apple went down hill since Steve died.

Yeah people can hate on him all they want but really catapulted Apple into the big leagues and you can tell he loved his job. Great humor and very entertaining to hear him talk during his keynotes.
Justin Franks
Such a tiny auditorium! It's incredible how much Apple has grown over the past dozen years. And it was the iPod that started that explosive growth.
That pricing logic xD HAHAHAHAH! CD player-75$ => 15$ per song dear me xD
Bobbie Brennen
Damn that thing is Gigantic lol
thats certainly true, though it is a funny contrast, the two :PPP I love steve jobs, he is an innovator and genius. The funny thing to me about the comic sans thing, is he emphasized graphical interface and typefont in the original apple products, as something that would make apples design stand out, and appeal to more people. He was a brilliant designer, and people are loyal to him and his company for that...and there he is with comic sans, and everyone HATES comic sans, HATES! now thats funny
Apple design is much more than the font they used.
This is a jab a Microsoft, y'know cause they announced nothing about games, just media.
Lol wtf 144p

That charger is similar to the iPad charger.
Bernardo Neves
I bet most of the people there watching Jobs talking, about a mp3 player, were thinking "Hmn it's an ok product nothing major special about it..." and then Ipod made Aplle what it is today.

This was 14 years ago, when 1,000 songs was considered enough for someone's "entire music library". Now, 2015, my entire library is over 10,000 songs, and about 100 of those are between 1-3 hours long.
