Using the slogan, “1000 Songs in Your Pocket,” Steve Jobs introduces the original iPod. By using a 1.8″ drive, the iPod was significantly smaller than competing MP3 players of the time. At its introduction, the original iPod only worked with Macintosh computers. However, the popularity of the iPod among Windows users – who had to hack together a solution to use it with their computers – prompted Apple to release a Windows compatible version in the second generation of iPods.
