Over Christmas break I played music on an old iPod we keep at our New Hampshire house. It still plays Jack Johnson as well as it ever did. But to Apple, in terms of sales, the iPod is barely a blip on the radar in an iPhone world. Technology tends to be a killer to older products. That’s why it’s so impressive that the Fender Stratocaster turned 60 last year and it’s technology really hasn’t changed a lick. A few years ago I was flipping through the channels on TV and landed on the music station Palladia, showing Jeff Beck at Ronnie Scott’s. It’s hard to argue with the sound he gets out of the same old guitar from the 50s.
