So long iPod and thanks for all the tunes!

That’s it. It’s the end. Apple has finally put the final nail to the iPod. The Nano and the Shuffle series won’t be produced. So you would better keep them as a relic of the past. They might cost too much on ebay.com if you want to sell them.

iPod was released all the way back in 2001, when CD players were in vogue. Steve Jobs took the industry by storm as the iDevice becomes the de-facto of music aficionados. As the times went by,  Apple released a multitude of upgrades for the iPod and hardware revisions. I owned my first iPod Photo all the way back in 2004. Back then I still used my Creative MP3 with only 128 MB of storage. As compared to my iPod Photo that held of 30 GB of data, well the difference was so big!

When iPhone was released, Apple produced a iPod touch, it was basically an iPhone without the cellular capabilities. the Touch version went through many iterations.  Apple kept producing the nano series along the side. The latest one is the iPod Nano 7.

It should be noted that Apple won’t put the touch-version of the iPod on the chopping block, as it continues to manufacture them.

So long iPod.
