The iPod turns five




Hard to believe it, but a half decade ago today Steve Jobs stood up in front of a small crowd and introduced an "MP3 music player... that plays all of the popular open formats of digital music, MP3, MP3 VBR, WAV, and AIFF," a device that changed the consumer electronics industry forever. Of course, that device was the iPod. Love it or hate it (we tend to have mixed feelings about it 'round Engadget HQ), the iPod helped to make consumer electronics cool again, and managed to be a huge step forward for the CE industry shortly after the tech bubble had burst -- and during a time when the country was in turmoil after the attacks of 9/11, no less. No, the iPod wasn't the first digital music player -- not even the first with a portable hard drive -- but we're not going to wax on about what it was that charmed tens of millions of consumers out of their hard earned cash. So we figured it'd be enough to present to you an iPod family tree, do a little groundskeeping to make sure the iPod family cemetery is in good shape, and let you blow out the iPod's birthday candles whichever way you like.

P.S. - Check out Steve's original introduction to the iPod after the break. Ah, memories.

Introduction of the ipod "youtube video a must see"

That is From the Engadget article

I would like veryone to talk about the first ipod they every had and explain how much better it was to have a portable jutbox to store all there music. For example my first Ipod was the 4g Photo. But my friend Is supposed to give me his first gen IPOD because he is to stupid to know it's worth and yes i have played around with it it's a remarkable peace of machinery

2nd on the creative Zen

I have the 8Gig and I love it to death, plus I got it for only $150 CAD
post #6 of 39
mine stopped working after 11 months... never grabbed my one year warranty on it. hard drive died. since then i decided portable audio isnt worth the money and i should spend my money on car and home audio.

It's a black 2 gig Nano. (1st gen)

I love it a lot. Wish the battery life was better, but I'm rarly away from a USB port for more than a few days. Sound quality is impecable, very nice OP amps.
