Goodbye iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano

Goodbye iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano
By Om Malik • Issue #40 • View online

All good (and even great) things come to an end. After twelve years, it is finally curtains for iPod Shuffle and iPod Nano. “Today, we are simplifying our iPod lineup with two models of iPod touch now with double the capacity starting at just $199 and we are discontinuing the iPod shuffle and iPod nano,” Apple informed Business Insider.
I have many fond memories of both iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle. Lot of folks forgot that Nano was the first “Apple Watch” and the idea came from its community of hardcore enthusiasts. I was one of those people who wore an iPod Watch.
Long before there was Marie Kondo and her love-what-you-own-philosophy, there was the iPod Shuffle, which prompted me to come up with The iShuffle Principle.
The end-of-life of these beloved music players means it is time for me to dig out my favorite pieces from the archives to relive the memories.
Onwards to new Pods - in our ears and in our homes: aka AirPods and HomePods. And yes, they are both awesome and worthy of my love!
