iPod Porn

Andrew Kim on the iPod Mini:

There is a poetry to the click wheel that I find beautiful. The simple act of rotating your finger on the wheel allows you to skim through thousands of songs. Our electronic devices have gotten increasingly complex over the past decade and I think there’s something really appealing about the sheer simplicity of a uni-tasking device like this.

I know Kim has moved on from mnmllymnml but every now and then I still spend a few minutes there, admiring his photography and writing.

There’s a lot of great iPod porn out there, from On Death and iPods, An Ode to the iPod Classic, and My Original iPod is a Time Capsule from 2002. Good stuff. Gets you right in the mid-aught feels.
