In the theme of “how fast technology moves” I had one of these in my early teens. That is an Intel MP3 player. I remember my cousin asking me how the little box played music. She used those words. It was about as thick as a small novel, it was shorter than the average cellphone and if you popped open the back you could add in expanded storage. I think it came with 250mb internal memory. Wait I googled. It came with 64. 64MB. 64.
I loved that thing, it got me through so many high school bus rides.
By the time I graduated from high school, ipods were everywhere.
