The iPod is a portable device that plays music as well as movies. It is the most popular form of portable entertainment. The iPod is built/ manufactured by the Apple Store and is considered one of the best mp3 player. The iPod has cutting edge technology; because of this the competitors of the iPod are still far behind when it comes to mimicking the technology. “It should be noted that besides the ability to play MP3's, most iPod's can play AAC, WAV, AIFF, Apple Lossless and Audible 2, 3 and 4 formats.” One of the reasons that the iPod has won such favor is because of its size and storage capacity. The size allows you to wear it on your arm, and there are also cases that are sold for this purpose. You can also have up to 120GB of music or video depending upon the iPod that is purchased.
