Fine Brothers Entertainment has conducted another one of their “Kids React” videos.
This time they gave Apple’s very first, original iPod (which offered a massive 5GB of onboard, torque-inducing storage — we have 8GB on our wrists right now! — and featured a lovely low-res monochrome display with mechanical scroll wheel) to:
• Dominick, age 7
• Jenna, age 7
• Sydney, age 7
• Melanie, age 8
• Brooke-Monae, age 9
• Kelis, age 9
• Maxim, age 9
• Niki, age 9
• Isael, age 11
• Morgan A, age 12
• Dylan, age 1
Watch them react to Apple’s iconic device as they see it for the first time:

MacDailyNews Take: So, how old do you feel?
Note how easily, without instruction, the kids figured out how to use it. Excellent work, Steve Jobs & Co.!
BTW: The way these kids react above will be similar to the way kids 10 years from now react when told that nobody wore Apple Watches before 2015. They’ll be incredulous.
In fact, Apple: That would be a great commercial. It’s the year 2025. Kids of the future, in the style of the video above, react incredulously to a Swatch watch, each with an Apple Watch 7 on their wrists, of course, comparing all they can do* to the anachronistic wristwatches of yore. “What, nobody had an Apple Watch? They used their iPhones for that? No way!!!”
*Today’s Apple Watch’s functions and features will be more than enough, no need for fanciful projections of future capabilities.
