Apple’s popular iPod player has marked its fifth anniversary as a cultural phenomenon that helped bring music into the digital age and reap billions of dollars in sales for the US company.

The California-based company launched its mini music player five years ago on Monday, October 23, 2001 and has never looked back as sales of the trendy gadget have continued to skyrocket.

Apple shipped over eight million iPods during its fiscal fourth quarter, marking a 35 percent increase in such shipments over the year-ago quarter, according to the company’s latest earnings statement released last Wednesday.
