Steve jobs can sell anything, he can sell water to a fish if he wants to.
Magpie Grun
No overbearing chorus of applause when he unveils the device? It was just the beginning!
Joel Austin
Only thing sad about this video is that I didn't buy their stock @ $7 bucks/share

Jobs was talking about fast charging 17 years ago. And here we are getting regular charge bricks still shipping with thousand dollar iPhones. 🤦‍♂️

Steve Jobs is one of the best presenters that ever lived

Magical words:"... Holds a thousand songs, and it fits right in my pocket"

I feel like watching a " prehistoric documentary" about dinosaurs. My God... :D

Its amazing how much the current design looks like the original despite being 15 years old. The original iPod still looks modern today.

I wonder how much better apple would be if this man didn't die... It's really sad to just think about it...
Apple Cultists!
The press... "right, no big deal, an MP3 player"... You were WRONG
Stephen W. Phillips
The saddest part about this video is the Comic Sans -ish font that Apple used in the presentation. WHY?!?!
Jose Guilarte
Chills. straight chills.

When he said, "it holds FIVE GIGABYTES" and it was like, WHOA thats a lot of memory xD
Mikkel Jensen
They dont seem very excited about it....
grantsdaman01
It's funny how thick it looks to me as he's showing how thin it is. That thing is a brick by today's standards

You have to remember Akio Morita founder of Sony back in the day used a marketing strategy for it's first small radio and used the term "it fits in your pocket". Of course it didn't, so they had their sales reps wear custom dress shirts that had the pockets just the right size to fit their "pocket radios" and the strategy worked. Steve loved Sony creator Akio Morita and you can see a lot of similar ways he used Morita's marketing strategies. If you want to learn who steve learned from it's best to check out videos from Morita on youtube. Both him and Steve really were great! Like all companies once the founders die it never seems to have the same magic.

15 years ago today, Apple changed the face of music for ever. All these years later, they've only gotten better.

My dad has the first iPod and still didn't take it out of its box!

Most important moment in recent electronics history. iPod revolutionised the music industry, and then iPhone the smart phone industry.

You guys remember what music was like in 2001? CRAWLING IN MY SKIN

I'm not getting the math. How does a $75 price tag for a CD player equal $5.00 per song on a CD?

FAST CHARGE - 2001 ...think About when Smartphones first introduced fastcharge as a feature.

"Here we see Steve Jobs introducing the very first iPod at a low key event in 2001. The rest is history." Here we see people in 2006 thinking they'd history. Let me tell YOU, 2006 people. The REST is history.

18 years ago he did fast charging in ipod Ultra portability. High quality hardware + software. Superior in every possible way. Lithium polymer battery. He was 20 years ahead of his time.

Not sure if most people realize this... but this Keynote is amazing. The speech/ presentation is what started the world we live in today. No matter if you have a windows phone, droid or iPhone. This is what started it all. Absolutely amazing.
