As I’ve been looking through some old pictures, I came across this photo from a trip I took with my choir to New York City in June of 2008. The picture is of a slice of Junior’s Cheesecake next to my 60 GB iPod Video (5th Generation).
I took this picture as a point of reference to share with my wife at a later time, as she had just given birth to my oldest son (her second child), and she was unable to accompany us on the tour. As both my wife and I had iPods (mine was black, hers was white) and they were…get this…$399 each.
That’s right…we spent as much on an iPod as a brand new 16GB iPad 2 will cost you today.
That was just under four years ago.
