iPod nano

The iPod nano has an amazing design aesthetic that makes everyone want one. Add to that Steve Jobs and Company’s ubiquitous marketing machine and you have a product that transcends pop culture itself. iPod has changed pop culture, and iPod nano may have the ability to redefine it. Do you have nano fever yet?.

I just bought an iPod Photo that has over 60GB of storage and know that I don’t need the nano, but I still want one. And I am not alone. I saw a man in his fifties at the gym proudly showing off his new nano, while holding a full-size iPod in his other hand, to another man who was about the same age. I must admit, I was a little jealous. When you see a grandfather with a nano and you still think it’s cool that says something–either I am brainwashed or this device is truly the coolest thing on Earth.

I think I’ll be able to resist the temptation to get one, at least until larger ones come out. In a few years this will probably be the size and form factor of the 100GB model.
