iPod Book

Steve Jobs introduced the first iPod on the 23 October, 2001.

Less than 6 years on, and with over 100 million units sold, it is easy to forget just how 'out of the blue' this ubiquitous music player arrived. A quick survey of Apple fanpeople's responses shows that even the 'faithful' were skeptical...

"The Reality Distiortion Field is starting to warp Steve's mind if he thinks for one second that this thing is gonna take off."

"Great just what the world needs, another freaking MP3 player. Go Steve! Where's the Newton?!"

"I still can't believe this! All this hype for something so ridiculous! Who cares about an MP3 player? I want something new! I want them to think differently! Why oh why would they do this?! It's so wrong! It's so stupid!"

"I'd call it the Cube 2.0 as it won't sell, and be killed off in a short time... and it's not really functional."

Fast forward to 2007, and iLounge have released their third 'iPod Book', a 230-page PDF crammed with iPod accessories, including a few pages of extras for the soon-to-be-released iPhone.
