We all know the story of the iPod, the first device to put 1,000 songs in your pocket. In less than a decade, Apple sold more than 275 million iPods in a variety of iterations and more than 10 billion songs through its iTunes store. This device let runners, cyclists, gym rats, and athletes of all caliber train with music, and saved them from the weight and awkwardness of tape players and portable CD players. The iPod gave outdoor enthusiasts access to more music than ever before in a personal player.
