Ten years ago today, Apple unleashed a potent musical force upon the world. I speak of the iPod, that tiny white box of a thousand songs that captivated the world for years after its introduction.

In honor of this anniversary, I decided to look back weird accessories, strange artistic tributes, and other odd sidelights of the world’s most iconic digital music player. So put in your earbuds and zone out from civilized society — it’s time for iPod Oddities.

    You put your lazy finger down more than 8 times the amount you would clicking next writing your ridiculous comment.

    I'm not clicking through a slide show sorry not that interested.

  13. dude Says:

    Please read the following with copious amounts of sarcasm: Oh gosh! I’m so tired from clicking through all 13 pages!

    Are you people spoiled, or really just that lazy?

  14. Anon Says:

    I wouldn't want kids in a class setting being exposed to Steely Dan. Besides, that name comes from a lower-tech version of the OhMyBod in a previous slide.

  15. JetJagger Says:

    Wow…what a bunch of prima donna complainers. It's a slideshow. Time.com puts each image on different pages so that they can maximize their revenues from ad views based on unique page addresses. I expect most (if not all) of you who are whining aren't involved in any type of e-commerce?

    Sheesh.

    @Dude – just trying to stop Technologizer from going down the eweek path. Clearly, they want eyeballs for advertisers. That's fair. I'm here, giving my eyeballs. But having these slideshows who's ONLY PURPOSE is to artificially inflate the click numbers….is annoying.

    Therefore I write my protest in hopes that Technologizer will realize that there's a GOOD chance that slideshows will actually lower their eyeballs over time. So STOP IT….STOP IT NOW!

    :)

    It's not like there aren't a zillion other tech blogs eager for my eyeballs.

    This is some great content; slideshow or not! But Harry, you need to see if you can get in on those Javascript slideshow layouts that allow people to opt-out and view content full-page, like Gizmodo does.
