As for Apple, I had a solid state MP3 player in 1998 that was smaller than an iPod, had a better DAC than an iPod, and used less power than an iPod. Not my fault they didn't go public so they could staff a marketing division.

And you had to buy your music from a brick and mortar, convert it to MP3 (which in 1998 took minutes per song), then load it manually onto your MPMan.

Sure -- the tech existed in 1998. But Apple successfully transitioned the entire market to a buy online format.

I am no Apple cheerleader. But I will give credit where it's due.
