Reader Comments I never really liked the name. And the iThing is really getting tired. I think the iPod succeeded in spite of its name. Posted by Guest Poster #1 on 11/14/08 4:10 PM "it's" means "it is". "how the iPod got it's name" reads "how the iPod got it is name". That doesn't make sense. "its" is the possessive form of "it". It should be "how the iPod got its name." grammar Posted by Guest Poster #2 on 11/14/08 9:34 PM it doesn't say "it's" anywhere you dope, just "its" Posted by Guest Poster #3 on 11/15/08 6:30 AM Another little piece of cool Apple lore. Posted by Guest Poster #4 on 11/15/08 10:17 AM

It says its now, thanks to the change editor made after the dope pointed out the dopey mistake. Posted by Guest Poster #5 on 11/15/08 11:21 AM iPod was a name already in use on the Apple campus for a kiosk system which was in development. The name was ripped from that project. Too bad it just isn't true Posted by Guest Poster #6 on 11/15/08 1:19 PM Yes, the word iPod had already been registered by Apple as a trademark, but the team working on the music player that would become the iPod wasn't aware of that fact until they themselves tried to register the name.

P=portable + 'aud' audio. pod ipOd Posted by Guest Poster #8 on 12/21/08 12:29 AM QUESTION: Who really came up with the Name i Pod? ANSWER: Its Australian and it was 5 years before apple thought of it. Futurologist Hugh C Gray JP was the CEO of a business called” I Pod” In Queensland Australia where the business name was first registered. On July 24, 2000, Apple registered the i Pod name for "a public internet kiosk enclosure containing computer equipment," However the article below may indeed shed some light as to the true history of the naming "i Pod and in fact it would seem that this was also the first use of the letter”i" as in the i Pod first registered by futurologist and CEO of the i Pod business Hugh Gray JP in Brisbane Australia, Was in fact the first use of the letter "i" in a product, Which would even predate the "i Mac" .Although some sites on the net do acknowledge this fact, What most people and the Media do not know is that Apple had their Australian Lawyers investigate this claim and report back to Apple head office, And they admit that the Australian Claim of Hugh Gray to be the first to come up with the name i Pod and use the name commercially is true. Apple Computers have still not acknowledged this on their website. Where they still push the “Vinnie Chieco” story or their July 24, 2000 registration of the name in USA As being first use. Even though they now have proof positive that it was registered in Brisbane Australia over 5 years earlier. Check out the details and the time line on this site. and you will realize that the above statement is the earliest use of the letter i and the full name i pod how the i pod got it name, This is the truth and apple did not pay one cent Posted by Guest Poster #9 on 02/11/09 1:04 AM

The designer approached Apple with it to see if Apple was interested in it. Apple would provide the computers. Apple said they were not interested. Then Apple started to put up large bill boards with the name ipod all over the place. Then after a time they introduced the device they now call ipod. Apple sued the little guy, knowing he couldn't stand a chance. and ended up paying him $5,000 to go away. That is the truth.
