What You Can Do with Your iPod

The iPod is, essentially, a hard disk and a digital music player in one device. The hard disk enables the device to hold far more music than most MP3 players. The 30-gigabyte iPod model can hold around 7,500 songs, depending on how you import them. I use very high quality importing settings, which means that my songs take up much more space than your average MP3 song on the Internet, and yet I’ve been able to fit, on a 30-gigabyte iPod, more than three weeks’ worth of music if played continuously, around the clock—or about one new song a day for the next 20 years.

At 5.6 ounces, the iPod weighs less than two CDs. With an LCD screen, circular scrolling pad, and buttons that feature backlighting for clear visibility in low-light conditions, the iPod is designed for easy one-handed operation. It offers up to 20 minutes of skip protection—twice that of other hard drive-based MP3 players on the market—so you can enjoy outdoor athletic activities without missing a beat. And with a thickness of only 0.62 inches, the iPod fits comfortably in the palm of your hand and slips easily into your pocket.
