The first iPod was unveiled ten years ago today, on October 23rd, 2001. Along with a monochrome screen and a mechanical scroll wheel, it came with 5 GB of storage space and a price tag of $399. You could get it in any colour you wanted, so long as it was white.
It wasn’t the first of its kind, but it certainly was the one that popularized mp3 players and ushered in a new era. Happy Birthday, iPod!
Birthday number 2 of the day!
