2001 में आज Apple ने iPod म्यूज़िक प्लेयर लॉन्च किया था जिसे ज़बरदस्त सफलता मिली थी। उस समय इसे “the Walkman of the twenty-first century” कहा जाता था। iPod में 5 GB की hard drive थी और इसमें करीब 1000 गाने स्टोर किए जा सकते थे। इसके प्रचार में एक Oneliner का इस्तेमाल किया गया था ‘one thousand songs in your pocket’ यानी आपकी जेब में एक हज़ार गाने।
