There’s a great iPod parody of the classic Apple “1984” commercial here.
“Remember in 1984, when we said we wouldn’t be like 1984? Yeah. Well, whatever.

“Tony Fadell first conceived the iPod outside Apple. When he demonstrated his idea to Apple, the company hired him as an independent contractor to bring his project to the market, putting him in charge of assembling the team that developed the first two generations of the device. Apple’s Industrial Design Group, working under the direction of Jonathan Ive designed the subsequent incarnations.
Apple originally released the iPod on October 23, 2001 as a Mac-compatible product, but the company later released a format compatible with Microsoft Windows, before finally releasing a Windows version of the iTunes software that updates the iPod. As of October 2004, iPod dominated digital music player sales in the United States, with over 90% of the market for hard-drive-based players and over 70% of the market for all types of players. The iPod has sold at a tremendous rate, moving close to twenty million units in a total of four years. Apple has posited that the iPod has a “halo effect”, encouraging users of non-Apple products to switch to other Apple products, such as to Macintosh computers.”
