During our recent Optical Back-To-School Webinar Series, we asked attendees to share what their top priority is for nex-gen DCI solutions. The top choice was: maximize capacity. What is your top priority? Cast your vote.

October 23rd is iPod Day, a day to celebrate the introduction of the iPod and how it changed how we listen to and purchase music. A few ways to celebrate include: pulling out your older devices and comparing designs, playing albums and songs you listened to on the first iPod, and upgrading to the newest version (including iPhone and iPad here ).  


Did You Know

On October 23, 2001 that the iPod was introduced. The iPod featured a 5GB hard drive, FireWire connectivity, and synchronization to iTunes. The iPod was much smaller than competing MP3 players, and of course, portable CD players. Starting at $399, the iPod provided an opportunity to compile an entire collection in one place and have 1,000 songs available at a touch of a button.



Have a great week and keep networking!
