Back on January 9, 2001, iTunes—just a day old—was a vastly different beast. Hell, the world was a different beast, and by that I mean Apple actually participated in MacWorld. What did you think I meant?

Digital music revolution? 320 million Blank CDs sold? My my my how times have changed!

What really hasn't changed much are Jobs' engaged public speaking style or the continued focus on simplicity and user experience. Also, how many times have people accused Apple of being "late to the party" on a software or hardware feature over the past 10 years? Jobs from 2001 touches on that too. Somes never change, I guess.
