Anonymous Reader writes, "Apple today announced the iPod, a 5GB MP3 jukebox portable. Selling for $399, the player's most interesting feature is the fact it uses FireWire for file transfers between the computer and the unit. Faster than the USB connection standard on most MP3 portables now, Apple claims an entire CD can be transferred in 10 seconds and 1,000 song files in 10 minutes. The article includes a photo of the iPod."
