iPod: How to maximize your iPod

Photo by: @cdharrison

If you don't know what these things are, then maybe you're not living in the 21st century.  Just kidding.  I don't even own one of these.  But it's definitely on my wishlist.  It would come in handy when travelling and while waiting for the next bus or plane.  An iPod is a portable device for storing and playing audio files and has now evolved to include playing movies and storing photos among other functions.  The introduction of iPod a few years ago has revolutionized the music player industry and now has almost become a daily part of an urbanized living.
