Today marks the 14th anniversary of the unveiling of the first-generation iPod shuffle, presented by former Apple CEO Steve Jobs on stage at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco. On January 11, 2005, Apple debuted the first-of-its-kind iPod shuffle, which completely lacked a display, weighed 0.78 ounces, and held up to 240 songs (on the 1GB model) that would be played randomly.

At the Expo, Jobs called the iPod shuffle “smaller and lighter than a pack of gum,” and touted the device’s low-end 512MB model, which ran for $99 in the United States and could hold up to 120 songs (the 1GB version cost $149). “With most flash-memory music players users must use tiny displays and complicated controls to find their music; with iPod shuffle you just relax and it serves up new combinations of your music every time you listen,” Jobs said.
