iPod Minis and TR-1s

The Regency TR-1 transistor radio, made in 1954, was the world’s first commercially sold transistor pocket radio. The similarities to the iPod Mini in form are striking, it even came in a variety of colors! The TR-1’s triple-action marketing slogan, “See it! Hear it! Get it!”, is also remarkably similar to Apple’s “Rip, Mix, Burn.” Did Apple get the look and slogan for the iPod Mini from the TR-1 or is it simply coincidence? You decide.
