Except, unlike the ipod, it is beautiful as well as functional.
We have lost so much.
In my opinion, an iPod is much more beautiful than a mass of needless decoration pointlessly plastered on the face of a supposedly functional device where such mindless decoration adds nothing but visual clutter.
In my opinion.
And unlike the ipod it was so expensive that only one person in the world had one.
It's hard to imagine Steve wasting time creating trivial, hand-made decorations on an artifact of little utility and extreme production cost.
The iPod is incomparably more beautiful.
Work smart, not hard.
