Happy Birthday iPod

The iPod turns 10 today. The original iPod could hold 1,000 songs within its 5 GB of memory. Huge!

The iPod has come quite a long way since then, and quite a lot was said at the time of the first iPod. This quote is my favourite of all the responses on MacRumors.

All that hype for an MP3 player? Break-thru digital device? The Reality Distiortion Field is starting to warp Steve’s mind if he thinks for one second that this thing is gonna take off.

Ten years on, the iPod has sold over 304 million units. I think it took off.

Watch these two videos. One is from 2001, the other is from this year.
