Apple Ipod- Music the Way You Want it
On the 23rd October 2001, the world was introduced to a technological phenomenon that would change the way people listen to music forever. The release of the iPod was much anticipated and it did not let anyone down.
The first iPod released had a capacity of 5GB which was enough for the user to have 1000 songs on. Second and third generation iPod were subsequently released in 2002 and 2003 respectively with slight improvements to make the product more user friendly.
By the time the fourth, fifth and sixth generation models had been released, the iPod had become very sophisticated with memory of up to 160GB available for users to upload their favourite songs as well as films and episodes of their favourite programmes. The iPod has well and truly become the market leader in MP3 players.
As well as the classic styles, Apple also released other versions of the iPod including the Mini, which was a smaller, lightweight version of the classic with less memory. The Nano, slim and sleek and ideal for those constantly on the go, and the iPod shuffle which was a screen-less version that was designed for those exercising as it was very small.
On the 5th September, Apple once again raised the bar. The iPod Touch was released which had Wi-Fi capabilities and a Multi-touch interface. Internet access was perceived to be the only thing missing from the product so Apple corrected this and made it available providing a Safari browser.
Another reason the Apple iPod gets good reviews is for the accessories it provides. One of the most successful has been the iPod Hi-Fi; many users flocked to the shops to buy the product that was a docking station for the iPod that allowed the user to play the songs on a high quality sound system.
Added to this, the release of the iPhone and iPhone 3G means that Apple are set to have a good Christmas with many of their products being at the top of Christmas lists.
