Who invented iPod?

i pod

The ipod that first hit the market in October 2001 was Apple made. Ipod is an exclusive brand of Apple Computer, Inc. A team of five members with Jon Rubinstein (senior vice president of hardware engineering), Jonathan Ive (senior vice president of design), Tony Fadell (an engineer), and Michael Dhuey (an engineer) worked under the leadership of Steve Jobs for a year at Apple to design the ipod. Apple took the design from the company Portal Player, so this was not the in house product of Apple. The name to the ipod was suggested by Vinnie Chieco, a freelancer who got the word from the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The original concept of ipod was of an Englishman Kane Kramer. He, at the age of 23 drew a rough design of a machine that could load music in 1979. Kane worked on his design with his friend James Campbell, they made the device and got it patented in England under the name of “IXI”. Due to unavailability of money, the worldwide patent
could not be renewed and got expired in 1988.

The ipods used today have passed through many phases of design, style and technology. They have good sound quality and storage capacity. The market has a wide range of ipods. They are iPod mini, iPod photo, iPod video, iPod shuffle, iPod nano and iPod touch common as i-touch. All ipods have specific characteristics some even store files other than music.
