Two years ago yesterday, I bought my first mp3 player. At the time, people didn't know that Apple made an mp3 player. And at the time, people thought I was slightly insane to pay $300 for something that "just plays music". Three years after it was originally introduced, the iPod is now a household name and is currently the most popular portable music player.
Even though my new 4th generation iPod (I swear a review is coming soon) takes care of my music playing duties, my trusty original iPod still works. And although it has been retired to storing backups and no longer plays music, it still is, in my opinion, the best iPod to come from Apple.
