iPod: 1,000 Songs in your Pocket
iPod is the first MP3 player to pack a mind-blowing 1,000 songs and a 10-hour battery into a stunning 6.5-ounce package you can take everywhere. Just plug it into your Mac to automatically download all of your iTunes songs and playlists at blazing FireWire speed. [Oct 23]

-Apple.com News

Hard to believe that exactly 6 years ago to this day the very first iPod was introduced.

The iPod has turned out to be such an increadible device over the years. It has gone from being practically a brick to one of the slimmest devices out there to this day… and getting slimmer. It’s absolutely amazing.

Check out this article from Digg as well as the original page from Apple to see what Apple.com looked like on that very day, October 23, 2001.

    Thanks for sharing these ipod thoughts. I’m bookmarking this for future reference.
    The new features may satisfy almost all requirements and may meet almost all expectations. Digital entertainment, the superior quality of the sound, the best technology in MP3 domain, great battery life and huge memory are only few features that are worth being mentioned.
    I am currently on holiday so, for this reason, I’ve nothing better to do than surf the web for ipod music, lie around and update my blog. Well, more or less anyway.
