  19. A new face on the scene

    iPod Classic

    Perhaps slightly unbelievable, but 13 years ago today was the day that Steve Jobs released what was the start of the Apple revolution – the iPod.

    Plainly, one of the most important and praised contributions to technology, the iPod was launched to us in two models; the 5GB and then huge at the time, 10GB. It was thought quite widely, how on earth would it be possible to fill a 10GB iPod?! And just think, last month Apple launched a 128GB iPhone….!

    Compared to an iPod of current times, the first iPod would probably look like something that has come out of a museum, but when you put aside first appearances, the inner workings are still there, or thereabouts, today. Basic software mechanic of the devices, organisation of tracks and some playback controls are still around in the more modern devices.

    Back in 2001, Apple released a product that sent shockwaves through the tech world. Once known for its presence in a relatively niche market of computer enthusiasts, Apple was almost overnight catapulted into the spotlight.  What came next was almost unprecedented – a huge boost for the company, catapulting them to the tops of everyone’s wish list.

    The new plan from Steve Jobs was wall underway.

    And we all know what came next – the iPhone.

    And the rest as they say, is history!
