IPod Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The iPod is a line of portable media players and multi-purpose pocket computers designed and marketed by Apple Inc. The first version was released on October 23, 2001, about 8 1⁄2 months after the Macintosh version of iTunes was released. As of May 28, 2019, only the iPod Touch (7th generation) remains in production. Like other digital music players, some versions of the iPod can serve as external data storage devices. Prior to macOS 10.15, Apple's iTunes software (and other alternative software) could be used to transfer music, photos, videos, games, contact information, e-mail settings, Web bookmarks, and calendars to the devices supporting these features from computers using certain versions of Apple macOS and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
Jacqui Cheng said the following about the iPod in her article "The original iPod: A re-review" in 2016:
"Let's face it: this thing is bulky. It was bulky in 2001 and it's still bulky now. Back then, the iPod was being compared against MP3 players with 4MB of built-in Flash memory and an external SD card slot. It was already bad enough then, but today, carrying around an original iPod in your pocket is almost akin to putting those velcro weights on your ankles and then riding a unicycle to work."
