iPod Celebrates 10th Birthday This Sunday

Ebay

Sure, I have one, my daughter’s OLD one, because we’ve been upgrading her and I get her hand-me-downs.  On Sunday, we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the iPod, the day that Steve Jobs introduced it on stage.  It changed the world and since technology continues to move forward, they aren’t seen as much.  Now we see the more popular iPhone and iPad.

Macworld details how the iPod came to be:

Behind every successful product lies a problem in search of a solution. The inspirational problem, in the iPod’s case, involved the pitiful state of the young MP3 player market in the late 1990s.

Portable MP3 players had been around since the mid 1990s, but Apple found that every one on the market offered a lackluster user experience. Steve Jobs had a strong term for gadgets like that: “crap”. Everyone at Apple agreed.

Of course, ten years later, the iPod has sold over 304 million units.

Do you own an iPod?  Would you/did you give it up for an upgrade, and if so, was it better or pretty much the same?
