Happy birthday to ... the iPod!

This week marks the sixth anniversary of the miniscule marvel that forever changed the way we experience music: the iPod.

On October 23, 2001, Apple shocked the techno world by announcing a different kind of digital audio player, one that used a hard disk for storage and was designed for convenience, power, and ease of use. The first model (codenamed Dulcimer) offered a whopping 5 GB of storage (enough for about 1,000 songs) and was only compatible with Macintosh computers.

In April 2007, Apple announced that the 100 millionth iPod had been sold, and the hot little number now accounts for over 25 percent of the company's earnings.

Why not celebrate your musical mate's birthday by buying it a sassy new outfit—like this sleek faux-croc metallic sleeve from iStyles?

Just the thing for everyone's favorite six-year-old.
