iPod 2nd Generation 10GB
Part five of my iPod adventure comes in the robust form of the 2nd generation iPod. This well constructed beast of an mp3 player is a recent eBay find that still looks great even after all these years.
This iPod is the first I have owned that doesn't come with a dock connector and as such the whole design, although familiar in some ways, feels alien in others. The input controls feel huge, and solid and the whole device feels like it was built to last. At the time of release it was applauded for its small size considering the amount of storage available, however, when compared with more modern iPods that particular revision clearly demonstrates just how far we have come in terms of storage capacities and miniaturisation of components.
I will be living with this beast for a while and will post my thoughts and findings on jonhume.co.uk so please do check that out for more information. Enjoy :)
