51 About the Care and Feeding of Your iPod

The first iPod was released within a year of iTunes itself, in November 2001, and it's been a smash hit since day one. It wasn't the first portable digital music player on the market—not by a long shot—and it wasn't even the first high-capacity, hard-drive-based player either. What made the iPod such a runaway success was a combination of its small size, its high capacity, and (perhaps most importantly) its groundbreaking user interface. With the navigation wheel enabling the user to scroll quickly through lists of hundreds or thousands of songs and zero-in immediately on the one she wanted, as well as to dig down into the hierarchical collection of music using the same implicit organizational methods as iTunes itself (instead of the arcane files and folders of contemporary players), the iPod truly was—as its original marketing described it—”iTunes to go.”
