Mystery of the birth of iPod


Mystery of the birth of iPod
While iPod, tiny and almost to nobody uninteresting the child of Apple, took the first shy steps to triumphal success, the secrets connected with his birth of nobody interested. Then they were exposed on a public inspection and presented dirty and shameful...

Triumphal success causes envy and hatred from time immemorial, probably, it is one of features of our species. We will just get acquainted with how it was actually, and we will draw own conclusions.

B Steve, most likely, didn't even think 2000 of one more attempt of Apple to win the market of consumer electronics. Such attempts already were, and their results are well-known. Technically, the household devices offered Apple in the 90th were very interesting, Newton MessagePad had a serious potential, the QuickTake digital camera wasn't a frank failure too, but the result was sad.

In the company worked on several household appliances. For example, in the 90th Apple was engaged in development of phone. It is a little data on this project, it is known only that it was not iPhone.

But at the end of 2000, or at the very beginning of 2001, happened something very important... Tony Fadell of Tony is the American of the Arab origin (Lebanese), the biological father of Steve Jobs too (from the Syrian city of Homs), most likely it had no value, just interesting detail.

of Tony worked for Philips until he had had one idea. As it happens always and everywhere, to convince the management of the company it didn't manage to be engaged in it. I have left, and I have tried to carry away this idea some other company, but too unsuccessfully. One more parallel, you don't find?

As was noticed once by Steve if in 1976 there was already a personal computer which could be bought, he just would buy it. Such computer wasn't, and any of the companies to which he handled his idea didn't begin to listen to it. I assume that at that time, despite talent of belief, Steve lacked knowledge in this area, and he couldn't prove convincingly value twist the ideas.

of Tony offered, neither more nor less, a revolution in the musical industry which main hero had to be a portable MP3 player constructed around the hard drive, tiny but decent capacity, and connected with online store, for example, with already incredibly popular "piracy" shop Napster.

As any of the companies capable to solve technical and organizational problems of this project hasn't seen in him potential, he has begun this revolution. One by one, he has constructed several prototypes, awful externally and far from the fact that it would be possible to call a word a product, but...

First, it has found those who have understood him, and was even ready to support, technically and even financially. This PortalPlayer company was called, and it was engaged in development "it is system - the chip", on the basis of ARM processors, generally for players. Tony has addressed to this company in search of processors for the prototypes, and has got acquainted with the senior manager there
