Personally, I will always remember that early iPod commercial. You know, advertising with dancing silhouettes on a colorful background with their bright white iPods and matching headphones? You knew there was a new iPod as soon as you saw the new song and the set of dancing silhouettes.

My first iPod was the iPod Shuffle because of course Apple products are expensive and I had to wait until the iPod was close to $100 to consider it.

Even without the screen, the Shuffle was worth it. So many songs could be placed on a device that resembled chewing gum. Coming from the CD Walkman era, my reaction to the Shuffle and MP3 players of the time was just around the corner. Ron Swanson of Parks and Recreationafter a colleague put all his music on the iPod: “Tom put all my records in this rectangle! Play one by one. It’s a great rectangle!”

But now my rectangle doesn’t just play music. It’s also a phone, a messaging tool, an email client, and basically a tiny supercomputer that my family believes is permanently connected to my body.

But most of us will never forget the iPod.
