I write code and occasionally blog posts.

End of the iPod

This week, Apple announced it was ceasing production on the iPod touch, officially making the iPod a gadget of a bygone era. My first iPod was a 3rd gen iPod touch, but I also owned a few Nanos. That iPod touch was my introduction to the mobile web and app space, while smartphones were still a novelty, before they were a necessity. Everyone I knew had novelty apps like the beer glass and the zippo lighter. It was also before mobile games were basically only freemium-only, with a lot of high quality games for only $0.99. It’s strange how different the internet and mobile tech was only 10 years ago, it certainly didn’t turn out how I expected.
