World's first iPod

The name iPod was registered by Apple to be used for internet kiosks but that never happened so when Apple needed a name for their new MP3 player Vinnie Chieco suggested iPod.

On October 23, 2001, after less than a year in development Apple released their first iPod.

The first generation iPod was a 5 GB model using a mechanical scroll wheel and a FireWire connection and retailed at a mere $399.00 USD.
