The 1st gen iPod is still available from the Apple Store

ipod1Someone out there is liable to actually spend $129 on this original iPod. I don’t even know if it’s available to buy even though there is an Add to Cart button. But more power to you if you have extra cash laying around to spend on a 5GB MP3 player. Truth be told though, this first generation was a very satisfying device. The scroll wheel was actually mechanical and you had to physically move it. Actually, I kind of wanna buy one.

Even though the picture shows a 3rd gen device, all the specs and model number listed in the URL points to the October 2001 release. So go ahead, pull out that credit card, and lets see if this really works. You first.
