News: The History of the iPod

 Nice story by the New York Times’ Rob Walker on the history of the iPod, two years old this month. I have to say after initial skepticism I’m a convert, whisking it around with me on forays to the jogging track, the pool, and the car.
There have, however, been rumblings of complaint about the battery: One user says he was given short shrift by Apple when his died after 18 months, being told it would be cheaper for him to buy a new iPod. I’m waiting for a response from Apple on this one.
