Reading Jacon Kastrenakes’s piece on the iPod nano reminded me it came out just after I started my MBA program.

My profs were on cloud 9 seeing a major company unafraid of disrupting instelf instead of playing it safe. Seeing Apple held up as a paragon of business practices felt like a major sea change to me.

While I’ll miss the iPod nano (and, to a lesser degree, the shuffle), I’m glad Apple finally made a call on the products.

With the focus on Apple Music, it’s long past “Put up or shut up” time on those products.

I usually mock the whole concept of luggage stores in airports, but damned if this didn’t drag me in the door.
