So Apple discontinued the iPod! A while back, I published a wiki page with my nostalgia-tinged thoughts on the iPod’s rise and fall, and I just updated it now. I still have my second-gen iPod Nano, as well as a 2014 iPod Classic, somewhere. They were great in their time 😌

@hawaiiboy Yeah, last I checked both my old iPods worked too! They're remarkably long-lived.

@jayeless I always enjoyed the advertisements' admonition to not steal music. As if there were some other way to fill the iPods' gigantic drives if you weren't independently wealthy. 🎶

@SamHawken Hahaha, for sure. I'm sure hardly anyone at my high school gave a stuff about that rule 🥲
