Music has always been a great form of entertainment. Young kids as well as adults consider music as a food for their souls. Different devices were used by music listeners, which got replaced with the passage of time with even better options.
If we look in the 1970s, there were Pressman gadgets introduced by the Sony manufacturer. Pressman was as big as a size of brick, heavy and uncomfortable for the users to carry it around easily. The Pressman was able to record and play music tapes. For the purpose of recording music or interviews, this device had a built-in microphone of stereo type.
After that, in early 1980s, Pressman was replaced by Walkman; again a product of Sony Corporation. It was a better replacement of Pressman with compact design and much better functionality of the device.
It also used music tapes to be played on it and was also capable of recording music. The walkman became popular in the late 1980s and that was the time we started looking a lot of people with headphones going around.
Time passed and soon, we came to the day when the first iPod was introduced. It was a revolutionary device, if we compare it to the Pressman or Walkman. The first iPod was introduced in 2001 and its size was equivalent to the cassette tape that was played in the Pressman or Walkman.
Although, flash MP3 players were introduced before the first iPod, but they could store just a few songs, whereas, the first iPod even had a 5GB memory for digital song storage. The magnetic tapes devices were replaced by digital devices like MP3, but iPod had the last laugh by giving the most optimized device with huge storage and excellent sound quality with some other interesting features.
It is extremely fast and let you copy a whole music CD in less than 10 seconds. Further, you can copy as many as 1000 songs in less than 10 minutes, which is quite unbelievable!
The former CEO of Apple, Steve Job said in a press release in 2001 that iPod is an entirely new class of digital music, which enables you to have your entire music collection in the iPod, which you can carry anywhere in your pocket and listen music wherever and whenever you want!
An exciting feature of iPod is the iTune, which helps you synchronize your music with the iPod automatically. Today, we have the iPod classic, which can store up to 160 GB of songs in it. This is 32 times more than the original iPod introduced in 2001.
Now, the iPod has also been integrated within the iPhone as well as the iPad. Both these devices can not only play music like the iPod, but also have the other advanced media types that we use today.
