It's crazy, to think they made 5 different generation of iPods in just under 4 years!

... And this is where it ALL began, in terms of Apple's resurgence in the last 10 years to become the most valuable company of ALL TIME. This is where it really started to take off.

Steve Jobs was awesome, I like the fact that he was a billionaire but he didn't let the money change him, nothing extra ordinary in the way he dressed or anything, he could fit in with us middle class people. RIP Steve

John David Meyers

Happy 10th Birthday, iPod. Ten years later, still as awesome as ever. Thank you Steve Jobs and the brilliant development teams at Apple for such a wonderful, impacting product.

Steve delivered keynotes like a rockstar. This and the 2007 keynotes were so freaking exciting. I was blown away by the reveal of the iPhone in 2007. Everyone was. And much of that was attributed to his excellent, enthusiastic, and above all, passionate, public speaking. To me, that was what set Apple news apart from any other computer news. It wasn't just about numbers and units. It was about new and exciting things made to enhance our lives.

RIP Steve <3

Johannes Wolfgang Schwartz

domdomdrumdrum
@sixflags26 and steve going from a chubby aggressive presenter to a skinny (hope he gets well soon) timid nice guy
sixflags26

griffiw615
@StubbaH Nah, he's just lost a lot of weight after being sick.
MasterChief3624

MasterChief3624
@jellyfishslapper Umm... I think this coming Christmas, actually.
jellyfishslapper

Tuomas Härkönen

The government happened.
Rafiki Mandrill
@d1995a3 yeah but the video the guy presented that he wanted to be in the same class as the hardrive where they were an average of 30cents per song
Rafiki Mandrill
what happened to 30 cents a song
BwillWall
that thing would fit in your pocket like a book
blakfire129
theyve found the recipe.

7:12 Or when the CD gets jumpy after one little bang. :/
Andrew Sparkes
A 'breakthrough device' that most other electronics companies had already manufactured for years. Don't get me wrong, it was the best one there was, but the 'personal mp3 player' breakthrough happened in the mid-90s.
Pixelcitizen
Also, what's up with the crowd? Everybody seems so dead and quiet.
Agamaz
8:31 oh my god lmao, 160kbps very high quality.... So funny nowadays standard for mp3s that you bought is 320kbps which goes up to 20khz and you can hear no compression, and youtube is still 128kbps I think
James Freeman
He says a CD player costs $75 and plays 15 songs so that equals $5 per song. No it doesn't, a CD costs $10 so that's roughly 65 cents a song.
