What exactly is an iPod you ask? Well if you like music and you didn’t want to carry around a tape deck, cd player or MP3 player.

Many different things

I had a blue 4 GB 2nd generation of the Nano, my wife had a pink 2nd generation and she lost it at Disneyland. I used this all the time when I finally upgraded from an MP3 player. It was a nice little device. They started making these in 2001 and went up to 2010 when the 4th generation of the Shuffle came out. These things held a lot of songs, then photos, yes for some reason photos. I just used mine as a music player.  This device in my opinion really changed the world.

Made by

This little device was made by Apple, yes that Apple that built the Lisa and the Mac. Apple is making some bold moves in the era of technology. What could be on the horizon?

My opinion

The iPod really changed the way I viewed portable music. Yes, I loved to listen to music in my youth. I would listen to the radio for about 18 to 20 hours in the day. Yea, I didn’t sleep very well or often back then. But I love music and these little iPod’s did the thing for me. I really enjoyed it. I just don’t know what happened to it. It is in a box somewhere.
