the iPod

My 80GB model is only a few days old, but the iPod turned 5 today. We thought we would celebrate the big event with a few links:

-The Business Standard has details on the iPod’s dominance. 72% of the US market, 39 million sold in last 12 months, 68 million users overall.
-Wikipedia has a
comprehensive description of the features, specifications and accessories for each model introduced so far.
-YouTube has Steve Job’s original
product announcement on October 23, 2001.

Finally, Wired Magazine has a great article on the design process that created the iPod. Happy Birthday little friend!
