Abstract from ‘Smart or Crazy? What Steve Jobs Did with the First iPod
Prototype’ by Henry Jay, 2 March, 2016.
“Steve Jobs announced the first iPod as a Mac-compactible product with 5GB hard drive that put
1,000 songs in your pocket. But before the event, something happened behind closed doors between
Steve Jobs and Apple’s Engineers who produced the iPod.
When engineers working on the very first iPod completed the prototype, they presented their work to
Steve Jobs for his approval. Jobs played with the device, scrutinized it, weighed it in his hands, and
promptly rejected it. It was too big.
The engineers explained that they had to reinvent inventing to create the iPod and that it was simply
impossible to make it any smaller. Jobs was quiet for a moment. Finally, he stood, walked over to an
aquarium, and dropped the iPod in the tank. After it touched bottom, bubbles floated to the top.
“Those are air bubbles,” he snapped. “That means there’s space in there. Make it smaller.”
And that was how the tiny size of the first versions of iPod came into existence. All thanks to the
Genius Steve Jobs.”
