What You Probably Didn't Know About Ipods

Apr 21, 2008
An iPod is a device that can store all the music you love, which you can carry around with you everywhere you go. And did we mention the hundreds and thousands of songs you can put in it? Ever since the release of the first iPod in 2001, it's been considered iconic. Today there is a lot we know about iPods. But there is also a lot about them that are out of this world!

The first iPods had a body made of white Lucite and chrome. A couple of years later the iPod Mini was released, which was a third smaller than the original iPod. Then came the smallest of all the iPods, which was the Shuffle. In fact, the Shuffle is the size of a stick gum. Yes, we know about these iPods and their very familiar white headphones.

The iPod is an incredible thing. Let's now talk about the larger iPod and iPod Mini. These babies use a very tiny hard disk for storage. The Shuffle utilizes a kind of memory called flash. This shouldn't be compared to the memory found in computers. What's good about flash memory is all the contents do not get lost when you switch the power button off. Over time, storage capacity of all iPods increases as the costs and capacities of the hard disks and flash memories keep falling.

iPods were iconic and it's beginning to ring true for their wonderful accessories. In the beginning, there were scratch-resistant cases. Then there were colorful ear buds and high-fidelity speakers that transformed the music player into a digital boom box. Ipod accessories have become so popular, the value of the iPod accessory market has been estimated to be $1 billion.

And that's not all when it comes to iPod accessories. The market seems to have a knack for all things strange and simply outlandish. Imagine getting your iPod a leather thong case. Yes, that is just one of the things you can get to add on to your music player. Or how about a dock that also serves as a tissue holder for your bathroom? In the world of iPods, anything is indeed possible.

While some will consider these wacky accessories to be more of a stylish addition than something useful, there are quite a few that still prove to have a slightly higher purpose. There are accessories like the iSticky Pad, which you can use to stick your iPod in your car so it doesn't move around too much. Who wouldn't admit this isn't a fun accessory as well?

There are many reasons to get excited about iPod accessories. You might be the type who simply wants to protect your third arm, a.k.a. your iPod. On the other hand, you might simply want to personalize your iPod experience. iPods are generally pretty good looking devices with their simple and sleek designs. So there's much room to improvise on your own there.

Next, you might know one shop that sells cheap iPods. But did you know there are cheap ways to buy an iPod? It all boils down to making a buying strategy.

First, try getting the model before the latest ones. It may not have all those new and sophisticated features, but it can still store all the music you want. You may also get a used iPod from reputable sources such as eBay and Amazon. There are actually many used iPods that are still in top condition. For even better quality, go for refurbished iPods, which were rarely used but still given new parts so that they look just like new. Don't forget to look out for coupons and discounts.

As you can see, there is a lot more to iPods than music and videos. IPods do create a whole new meaning for fun technology!
