Apple is easily the most well known name in MP3 players or
personal music players. The iPod has taken the music world by
storm and each time a new one is released it seems to break
previous barriers. Initially, they were slightly larger than
their counterparts but they were hard drive based and so held
thousands and thousands of songs but with the introduction of
the iPod Nano this soon became a thing of the past. The iPod
Nano uses Flash based memory and so it is infinitely smaller.
In fact, it is as thin as a pencil.
The iPod is popular for a reason though. As well as being
durable and very advanced it features access to iTunes. ITunes
is the Internetís largest music store and allows iPod users to
download tracks to their computer or to their MP3 player.
ITunes has also become huge in terms of popularity.
The 2GB Nano allows the storage of up to around 500 songs, the
4GB Nano 1,000 songs. They are both available in either black
or white and despite their miniature size they are hardy and
resistant to general wear and tear. With predictions that the
next iPod to be released will be the video iPod, Apple once
again look certain to take the portable media device to yet
Buying an iPod now also requires buying into an iPod. Those
own them love them, but there are some that are skeptical due
its price being quite high compared to other MP3 players and
fact that they feel they are paying for the Apple brand.
However, the iPod is an excellent personal audio player and
will have to go a long way to find one that is as good and
offers a service similar to iTunes.
