Just five years ago, Steve Jobs stood up in front of a small bunch of journalists 5 years ago and made his speech. 'The iPod is tiny. Just 4" tall and 2.5" wide. And only just over three quaters of an inch thick.' By our standards today, this would be considered huge! But it just goes to show how much consumer electronics have advanced in the past five years. He also went on to say that it weighed only '6.5 ounces. Now this is lighter than most cell phones.' Woah dude! Slow down! Lighter than most cell phones in today's market? Anything but so... And he called this thing 'ultra-portable'! Happy birthday to the iPod! But good grief... How much you've changed!
