Inside Look at Birth of the IPod

Inside Look at Birth of the IPod:

Interesting article about some of the things that coincided with the birth of the iPod. This was especially interesting:

"'There was no discussion of (digital rights management),' Knauss said. 'Their belief was DRM would hurt sales when they rolled out the music store. They specifically wanted no DRM in the original iPod.'"

This is sad: The guy is the same age as me, meaning that he was about 23 when he worked on the original iPod. Sigh...
