The iPod from the 50’s still beats today’s iPod

Faithful Macenstein reader Alfie P sent in this “What if the iPod came out in the 50’s?” parody ad, and I must say in many ways, it beats today’s model.

First, it’s sexy as hell. Let’s just get that out of the way right up front. But take a look at some of the other killer features it boasts that today’s does not:

1 – Built in speaker loud enough to listen to on the beach
2 – User-replaceable battery
3 – Comfortable earphones

Who cares that it can only hold 20 minutes of music? Back then I think there were only 3 songs anyway, none of which was more than 2 minutes.

    So you’re saying Apple once believed in user replaceable batteries for their iPod? I miss the good ole days!

    What? I replaced the battery in my iPod Mini. That didn’t hurt so much.
