How the iPod Came To Be

how the ipod was designed

Wired has an interesting interview with Ben Knauss, part of the team that designed and built the original iPod for Apple… lots of good behind the scenes info.

Here’s my favorite part of the story:

Knauss stayed on until near the end of the iPod’s development, but quit shortly before it was released because he had no confidence it would be a success.

“It was probably a mistake, but then you have to go with what you think at the time,” he said.
