Eight years ago today, Apple announced the first iPod — what you may recognize now as a 5G clunky gadget with a click wheel. The original iPod held 1,000 songs and weighed 6.5 ounces (current iPod classics hold 40,000 songs and weigh just under five ounces).

In the past eight years, the iPod has seen many changes — it's kind of unbelievable that now a tiny shuffle can hold nearly as much music as the original!

When did you get your first iPod? And how many have you had since?
