The end of the iPod?
I was at the Apple Store yesterday. While waiting for a Genius appointment browsing through the store we took a look at the small iPod display. I commented to my Dad that just a few years back the iPod was a major part of the floor display, and now the iPods nano and shuffle took up half a shelf in the accessories area.
This really demonstrated to me how much other products now account for Apple’s revenues and profits.
When I woke up this morning I saw several blog posts in my RSS reader, and notes on Micro.blog and Twitter, noting that Apple had removed iPod nano and iPod shuffle from their online store and web.
iPod remains an incredibly important part of Apple’s history, and it was probably the first introduction to Apple for many current users — it certainly was for me.
