It's kind of hard to imagine, but this week marked sixteen years since the unveiling of the iPod, which was introduced by Steve Jobs at an event in Apple's Town Hall auditorium. With a 5 GB hard drive capable of putting "1,000 songs in your pocket," the $399 iPod generated a decidedly mixed reaction at the time, but went on to become one of the most iconic gadgets of all time. Sixteen years and a number of different model variants later, only the iPod touch remains in Apple's lineup as customers have primarily moved on from dedicated music players to devices like the iPhone that pack in many more features.
