Ten years ago, when Apple introduced the iPod, some people were unimpressed.

Creative’s Nomad player had more storage space, but the iPod could transfer 1,000 songs in less than 10 minutes—30 times faster than any competitor. It was a joy to use, not a chore.

The launch of the iPod was a big bet for a computer company. It seems to have turned out okay for them.

His nose is pressed to the window, waiting for the courier to arrive. He won’t get much homework done this week…
