We had the hardware expertise, the industrial design expertise and the software expertise, including iTunes. One of the biggest insights we have was that we decided not to try to manage your music library on the iPod, but to manage it in iTunes.

All but the blind may read, and gather from the reading new lessons in the meaning of America.aldo leopold
