2001 MacRumours thread sh-tting on the iPod announcement
 

 
apparently yesterday was the 19th anniversary of the original ipod announcement. here's a thread of apple nerds in 2001 reacting to steve jobs' now-legendary announcement of the original iPod

iPod?

iPoop... iCry. I was so hoping for something more.
Sounds very revolutionary to me. image

hey - heres an idea Apple - rather than enter the world of gimmicks and toys, why dont you spend a little more time sorting out your pathetically expensive and crap server line up? image
or are you really aiming to become a glorified consumer gimmicks firm? image
This isn't revoltionary!

I still can't believe this! All this hype for something so ridiculous! Who cares about an MP3 player? I want something new! I want them to think differently!
Why oh why would they do this?! It's so wrong! It's so stupid!
iCan't believe it!

It's now at the online Apple Store!

$400 for an Mp3 Player!

I'd call it the Cube 2.0 as it wont sell, and be k*lled off in a short time...and it's not really functional.

Uuhh Steve, can I have a PDA now?

No ***** Way

All that hype for an MP3 player? Break-thru digital device? The Reality Distiortion Field™ is starting to warp Steve's mind if he thinks for one second that this thing is gonna take off.
Sorry I'm just venting....

Steve Jobs: "Isn't this cool? It's never been this fast or this easy before."

Me: Uhh, no!
revolutionary?

There are already two products similar to this on the market. The Nomad Jukebox and the Archos Jukebox which can come with a 20 gig HD. The iPod is obviously alot cooler and has firewire, but it is far from revolutionary. I for one am disappointed and think that apple is making a mistake by trying to get into this market.

The iPod became the iPhone 2g and the iPhone literally changed the world.
