Apple Music Event 2001-The First Ever iPod Introduction


Here we see Steve Jobs introducing the very first iPod at a low key event in 2001. The rest is history.

Steve, I don't know if you can read this, but Tim Cook is selling a monitor stand for $999...
Joanne Campbell
To think at some time apples slideshow looked like my 7th grade PowerPoint in 2007

"160 kbps is a very high compression rate of mp3. " oh the times

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!
Mike McDermott
Jobs was talking about fast charging 17 years ago. And here we are getting regular charge bricks still shipping with thousand dollar iPhones. 🤦‍♂️
Joel Austin
Only thing sad about this video is that I didn't buy their stock @ $7 bucks/share
Collin D
that's a terrible font
Ionut Nicusor Dragomir
now we can have 100.000 songs that can fit in your buthole :D

Magical words:"... Holds a thousand songs, and it fits right in my pocket"
Daniel Li
Its amazing how much the current design looks like the original despite being 15 years old. The original iPod still looks modern today.
Alex Root
I feel like watching a " prehistoric documentary" about dinosaurs. My God... :D
Marco Scarpa
Then: 1000 songs in your pocket Now: 999 dollars on your desk for a screen holder

I wonder how much better apple would be if this man didn't die... It's really sad to just think about it...

Watching this on a potato.
Apple Cultists!
The press... "right, no big deal, an MP3 player"... You were WRONG

I was born a couple hours before the ipod was announced. :)

When he said, "it holds FIVE GIGABYTES" and it was like, WHOA thats a lot of memory xD
Jose Guilarte
Chills. straight chills.
Stephen W. Phillips
The saddest part about this video is the Comic Sans -ish font that Apple used in the presentation. WHY?!?!
Soni Prihutomo
Watching this on my iPad Air 2 😄
Dr. Gregory Haus
9:03 So... This wallet holds all your money... And it goes right in my pocket :)
Jasjeet Singh

Most important moment in recent electronics history. iPod revolutionised the music industry, and then iPhone the smart phone industry.
joseph Land
It's too bad this never really caught on
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
Danny B
Man he could deliver a speech without effort. Love or hate Apple, Steve was unique, the Apple line-up would have been drastically different if her were alive, i bet my iPhone X wouldn’t have a notch.

This is fascinating! The crowd didn't know what to do when he said iPod!!! Wow!!!

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.

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.
Ben-Zra
a revolutionary moment. todays technology pretty much only upgrading the previous version, almost nothing groundbreaking anymore

Back when Apple was known for innovation.

Comic Sans was cool back in 2001.
Juan Benitez
I think music on this type of device is just a fad. I'm holding on to my cassette tape player.

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

"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.

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.

I love how in all the following Apple rallies there is thunderous applause every time he stops speaking. At this point everyone there was like, "Apple, you are finished, but what you got?"

iPods have been obsolete for at least the past two or three years... there's a reason smartphones can have so much memory.
