This recently hit me. I don't remember anyone at anytime questioning the name of the iPod. Why did Apple name the thing iPod? It sounds like some alien thing or maybe a plant thing. The only thing I could come up with is Personal Organizer Device. That's leaving the i off since the i has lost much of it's original meaning that it had in the time since the iMac or internet Mac came out. Has this been discussed here before? I did a fairly thorough search and was unable to come up with anything here on MacRumors. If anyone one has any insight into this please let me/us know.
