Have you noticed how music has penetrated into our day to day life? Think about your last trip to the mall, a sporting event, grocery store or the last time your call was put on hold. Wouldn't it be awesome if you could listen to your choice of music instead of those overplayed songs? What if you could have your own personal DJ so that you can hear music on the go?
The Apple iPod needs no introduction. Having revolutionized the way we hear music, this portable electronic device is a favorite amongst all age groups. Whether you are a music junkie, occasional listener, frequent traveler or a fitness freak, there is one out there, made just for you!
The classic Apple iPod with its 80GB or 160 GB capacity enables you to store your entire music and video collection in your pocket. Click Wheel makes it very easy to navigate, adjust volume, explore the menu and flip through music by album cover. Equipped with a display screen of 2.5 inches you can watch movies and TV shows. An audio playback of 40 hours makes this an ideal travel companion. Plug it into iPod speakers or a sound dock and you don't need to invest in another music system.
In case you feel that the classic model is too bulky, then you can opt for the iPod Nano or the Shuffle. Smaller and lighter, this can be clipped to your jacket, sleeve or even track suit so that you can access your favorite music at your fingertip. Ideal for runners and joggers, the nano comes with a built in FM Radio and pedometer. With six different colors up for grabs, the multi -touch iPod Nano is a must-have.
If you are looking for a transportable media player similar to the iPhone, then consider investing in an iPod touch. The most exciting feature - Face Time video calling enables you to see your friends while you talk to them. With applications such as music, videos, photos and iTunes, this device comes with a flash memory of 8GB or 16 GB.
Remember the time you listened to music on your walkman? With limited space available on those tapes, having to narrow down your favorite playlist? Oh, and the constant rewind and fast-forward to listen to your 'song of the day'. Those days are certainly history. With the Apple iPod and all its cousins such as the Nano, the Mini and the Shuffle you can store thousands of songs which will accompany you wherever you go.
