Happy Birthday iPod

This Sunday the iPod personal music player turns 10 years old. Devised by Apple CEO Steve Jobs and engineers including Tony Fadell and Jon Rubinstein, the device let users download files from Apple’s iTunes site and organize their music in “playlists.” The device dominated the market, “iPod” is now a generic term for any portable MP3 player, and audio download “podcasts” are a feature of many websites.
