Today is...The Anniversary of the iPod

Today in 2001, Apple unveiled the iPod.

Apple was founded in 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne, though Wayne sold his share when Apple was incorporated in 1977.

The first Macintosh computer was released in 1984. There was an ad for it during the 1984 Superbowl that was directed by Ridley Scott.

The first Apple store opened in 2001 in Virginia and California, announcing the iPod on October 23 the same year.

The first iPod was 5GB and held approximately 1,000 songs.

Between 2001 and 2007, over 100 million iPods were sold.

There are currently four types of iPods: Classic, Shuffle, Touch, and Nano. There are 25 base models of iPod, though each model has multiple choices of storage space.

What is your favorite Apple product?
