My How You’ve Grown

According to the Register, the MP3 player is ten years old this month. In March 1998, a Korean company launched a 32Mb player for $200. This is enough memory for about thirty minutes of music; less than one album. Looking at Amazon today, I see a 1Gb model for $25.30. Despite the range of such devices available now, the market is dominated by the iPod. For $240, you have a 60 GB device (180 times the original capacity). Happy Birthday to the MP3 player.
