iPod Design and Apple Stock Over the Years

Wall Street Journal put up a nice little graphic showing the evolution of the iPod along with Apple’s stock price. Semi-informative, I guess. Probably more of a fun graphic than anything else. I think it’s slightly misleading, suggesting the iPod was the only reason Apple’s stock changed. Let’s not forget about the iBook, iMac, Macbook, etc releases. Nevertheless, it’s cool to see Apple’s sexy design over the years.
