Spying this classic shot of the original iPod Shuffle hanging inside an Apple store display window in Tampa, Florida circa 2005, transports me back to a time when life was totally random. I bought the first generation iPod Shuffle, in fact I still have the original lime green packaging in pristine condition.
That skinny little white kid from Cupertino, was introduced to the world in an official press release on January 11, 2005. I fell head over heals for Apple's unpredictable new member of the iPod family, having 240 songs a million different ways.
I always enjoy gazing backwards at Apple's iPod evolution only to grasp how far we've come. Especially now that life is not so random anymore with iPhone. Then for just a moment I wish I could jump into a DeLorean and go back to the future. It appears I just did.
