I doubt that when Apple announced the first iPod back in 2001 anyone could have guessed that this would not only bring failing company back from the dead, but also be the debut for iconic iDevice product line. Now all of that is history, but how would we learn if not from it? So the smart people at Cupertino decided that nothing could be better than an official history of the whole iPod line. Apple have gone ahead and published this history along with high-quality pics of all of the iPods ever released. Be sure to check out this very instructive timeline.
