They’ve finally discontinued the last iPod. It’s the end of an era.
Although I haven’t used an iPod regularly since I bought an iPhone in 2007, I still have an incredible affinity for it. I gifted an iPod touch to my father-in-law, which was his first introduction to personal computing. And the fifth-generation iPod is one of the best gadgets of all time.
I used an iPod to listen to my favorite bands in high school. I spent thousands of hours listening to podcasts on an iPod. And before the Apple TV was released, I used an iPod to power the living room TV in my first apartment — for TV shows, movies, and video podcasts.
It’s a shame there isn’t enough of a market for it anymore.
