iPod Fun Fact:
The first iPod was created in 1956 by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). It weighed 17 tons, filled an entire gymnasium-sized room, and only held one song.
The name of that song? Thriller, which was being created by DARPA to help fight the Cold War. It was deployed 27 years later.
Here's a picture of that first iPod:
