The venerable iPod turned ten years old on October 23rd. I remember ordering the original iPod shortly after it was announced back in October 2001. That original 5GB model totally changed the way I listened to music. No more CDs or mix tapes – all my music was finally contained on one portable device.
Sadly, my original iPod is no longer with us. I loaned mine to my sister; she lost it while evacuating Hurricane Katrina a few years back. We still have our 30GB iPod Classic from 2003 and it still works, believe it or not. While the iPod still sells, its not nearly as big of a seller as it used to be, thanks in large part to the built-in music playing functionality of most modern smart phones now.
But, 10 years on – that’s a helluva run for any device, huh?
Inks and colors will happen soon. (Promise!) In the meantime, take a look at my latest poster pre-order sale. Thanks for your support!
