It's easy to say technology moves fast, and it's true. As hard as it is to believe the original iPhone launched in 2007, even though it already seems like smartphones have been around a lot longer.

Before the iPod nano, shuffle, or touch, there was just the iPod. It later became known as the iPod classic and, alas, Apple stopped making it last year. Here's what it looked like in 2005.
