Howdy,

2001 (World Trade Center bombing)

October- The ipod is announced to be sold for $399

November- A Legend is born, as Apple’s ipod hits the shelves

2002 (The Giants won the World Series)

March- release of the 10g. Ipod and Custom engraving.

July- Ipod rolls out its new 20g. with touch wheel as opposed to the click wheel.

August- Ipod becomes available to Windows users

2004 (President George W. Bush is elected as President)
