When I was a teen, I remember telling myself that it’s okay if I don’t have a TV or a computer console such as PlayStation, Nintendo, Xbox, etc. as long as I have an mp3 player beside me. Ipod has become one of the best mp3 player ever created and it has been a big impact to technology and to most people like me.
In the late ’90s and early aughts, MP3 players were known, well, as MP3 players. However, when Apple launched the iPod on October 21, 2001, it was such a huge success that it only took a couple of years for most people to simply start using the name “iPod” whenever they referred to an MP3 player. – Mashable
