Friday marks the 8th birthday of Apple’s iPod, the most popular line of MP3 players in the world.
The iPod has seen many transformations in its eight years. From the first generation’s bulky, brick-like shape, 5GB memory, and many unneeded buttons (and a hefty price tag of £240), the iPod now boasts colour and touch screens, video playback, up to 160GB of space, a whole rainbow of colours, and, most recently, a video camera in the iPod nano.
Obviously, with a great product comes a great advert. Always the Apple way, the music from the adverts are very catchy. We celebrate iPod’s anniversary with a countdown of all the music used in the iPod ads.
