I remember back in the summer of 2002. I bought my first iPod from Apple (on their Apple Store). If I do not remember wrong it was possible to pre-order it. I was really exited when it finally was delivered. It is a second-generation iPod, 20 GB, with Firewire, released 17th of July 2002.
I have not used it for quite a while, but some tweets before the weekend got my attention to it. So I just had to check if it was still working. And of course it does. I was pretty sure that it would work, but I was more unsure if it still wanted to play around with iTunes. No worry it worked smoothly! No software update since I upgraded it many years ago – iTunes states that my software version 1.5 is the latest. It will check for updates though.
I found out one more thing…
