iPod Oddities

Ten years ago today, Apple unleashed a potent musical force upon the world. I speak of the iPod, that tiny white box of a thousand songs that captivated the world for years after its introduction.

In honor of this anniversary, I decided to look back weird accessories, strange artistic tributes, and other odd sidelights of the world’s most iconic digital music player. So put in your earbuds and zone out from civilized society — it’s time for iPod Oddities.

    Slide shows are why I no longer read eweek.com. Loved the iPod story, hated having to page through it.

      You put your lazy finger down more than 8 times the amount you would clicking next writing your ridiculous comment.

      12 clicks to read the rest… it takes less effort to click than it does to type in all the characters required to complain

      In fact it is really educational. I'm figuring something out just after reading your post. Your resource site is definately quality and it can use to make money online should you try optimizing it with a selection of money generating programs.

    Wow…what a bunch of prima donna complainers. It's a slideshow. Time.com puts each image on different pages so that they can maximize their revenues from ad views based on unique page addresses. I expect most (if not all) of you who are whining aren't involved in any type of e-commerce?

    Sheesh.

    @Dude – just trying to stop Technologizer from going down the eweek path. Clearly, they want eyeballs for advertisers. That's fair. I'm here, giving my eyeballs. But having these slideshows who's ONLY PURPOSE is to artificially inflate the click numbers….is annoying.

    Therefore I write my protest in hopes that Technologizer will realize that there's a GOOD chance that slideshows will actually lower their eyeballs over time. So STOP IT….STOP IT NOW!

    🙂

    It's not like there aren't a zillion other tech blogs eager for my eyeballs.

    This is some great content; slideshow or not! But Harry, you need to see if you can get in on those Javascript slideshow layouts that allow people to opt-out and view content full-page, like Gizmodo does.
