Music Education in the News: Apple's iPod has reportedly sold its 100 millionth music player since it was introduced in 2001. I guess that makes me one of the few who doesn't own one, which hopefully will change come my birthday.

This Day in Music History 1977 - The song "Don't Give Up On Us" by David Soul is on top of the Billboard pop chart.

Interesting that you should bring up the IPOD topic. Chad Criswell just had an intersting commentary about an article, “An iPod for every kid”. Talking about the other side of a “budget crisis”.

Pretty interesting stuff… I have an mp3 player and they are wonderful and “time consuming” at the same time. It’s a love-hate relationship…

I don’t have an iPod though, all the kids at the college have them and they are always “razzing” me about not having an “iPod”…

The thing that “gets me” is you can have up to 25,000 songs on some of these devices… That’s about 100,000 minutes of music or 70 days of straight music! Wow!

Good luck with your purchase!

Hello Joseph,

Yes, I read that article on Chad’s site and it is an interesting read. Although I know iPods would be a great learning tool, I wonder how they would implement this effectively if it does push through.

I’ve mentioned I’m not tech-savvy but I’m really curious why the iPod is so popular and want to try it.

If I’m lucky I won’t be purchasing it myself, hopefully the hints I’ve been giving my husband would pay off :)

Thanks for dropping by, I saw you have a new blog that you’re testing out.
