1979 the year of the IPOD

It turns out the idea for the iPod came from Kane Kramer who at the age of 23 in 1979 came up with this design for a digital music player. The chip could only play 3.5 minutes of music. Kane could not raise the money to produce his digital music player and he allowed the patent to expire in 1998. The rest is history!
