There are lots of “urban business myths” floating around—from Facebook to Chia Pets, McDonald’s to Microsoft. But one of my favorites is the iPod. I remember driving in my car hearing a DJ talk about this radical new thing he was playing with, smaller than a pack of cigarettes, and it held 500 songs on it. I also remember thinking that my Sony Discman would be hard to beat, but just a few short months later, the iPod hit stores and was an instant success

Here’s a link to a short but interesting video on Tony Fadell, the guy credited with bringing us the iPod. In it he talks about his pre-iPod days, some missteps, and some breakthroughs. It’s certainly worth the 3-some minutes it takes to watch.
