Elegy for the iPod, the device that transformed Apple | Macworld.

Nice article looking back over the phenomenon that was / is the iPod.

I remember when it was released, Steve Jobs said (paraphrasing), “We’re going to announce something new – and it’s not a Mac”.

I thought at the time it was a nice idea but expensive. Since that day I have bought:

iPod mini (still works but unused)

iPod classic (still in use in the car)

iPod shuffle (sadly lost to the washing machine)

iPod Nano (still in use at the gym)

iPod touches (about 5 of them for various members of the family).

Yes – the iPod did chance Apple forever – it allowed the masses to experience the Apple brand and understand what those crazy Mac users have been going on about for all those years – a significant amount of them joined us also.
