Happy birthday, iPod -

Happy birthday, iPod -

Do you remember where you were when you first saw the iPod, with its smooth, white exterior and that mesmerizing scrollwheel? Maybe not, but few can deny that since the MP3 player first fell from the Apple tree five years ago, modern design--and the way we listen to music--have radically changed. Relive the music industry sea change through our retrospective

MP3 Insider: Me and my iPod(s) - CNET reviews:
Five years ago, the iPod was launched, offering 'a breakthrough MP3 music player that packs up to 1,000 CD-quality songs into an ultraportable, 6.5-ounce design that fits in your pocket.' It wasn't the first MP3 player by a long shot, but it was definitely the first to penetrate the mainstream psyche. It is the Walkman of the early 21st century . . .

I know one thing about the iPod . . . It's changed the way I, and almost every other bochur, goes to sleep.
I think that of the the 7 Smicha dorm rooms, every single one has at least one bochur sleeping with his MP3 player . . . most have more.
