SIMPLE JOYS OF LIFE
Nothing like music keeping company while you push yourself to go for a run early in the morning! That is my experience of an iPod that I got carved with the phrase ‘If music be the food of love, play on’ by Shakespeare.
An iPod was perhaps the best ever invention of mankind and of Apple of course! I would even go as far as saying that it was perhaps even a better invention than mobile phones. And now with the new iPod Touch, Nano and Shuffle released, it keeps getting better and better. You can watch shows, music videos, listen to radio, create your own playlists, hear songs that you may have forgotten about with the genius playlist, sync to Bluetooth in your car or at a party and continue to enjoy your songs wherever you go.
Following the philosophy of ‘form follows function’ in design; the apple products attract you in the simplest of forms, just like nature itself. The design of the iPod is as simple as it can get, but that’s what makes it stand apart from the products that make an effort to look good in your hand. Nobody wants an arm candy that doesn’t have a brain of its own, not for long at least. The effortless design of the iPod is further enhanced with bright and juicy colors it comes in along with the plethora of accessories available in the market now to boost the user experience of the product.
Other than design, the iPod was essentially designed to work with Apple’s already existing music organizer program called iTunes. The software was the first online music store to sign with all five major record labels of the time and provide legal music downloads at a minimal price. Currently, it is the largest online music store on the Internet with more than six million available tracks. So far, I have not heard of any other brands of mp3 players that have been able to make deals with other music download sites to challenge the simplicity and usefulness of iTunes.
And so they say,
An Apple is all you need to keep the doctor away!
