How much smaller is the new ipod in comparison to the old ipod? How does this compare to the storage space of each?



If devices to continue to shrink at the same rate, how thin will they be in 2050?







What are the dimensions of new iPod compared to original?What is the mass of new ipod and original?

Is there a relationship between the number of songs each can contain and its thickness?






Which is better as far as storage compared to size/weight? I.e., which has more GB per ounce?






Estimate how the efficiency of memory chips has changed from one model to the other.


















How many on the left could you stack up to reach the height of the one on the right?












How do the storage densities compare? How many GB might our ipods have in 5 years?

How has the technology changed since 2001? (Could be Moore's Law, depreciation of Gen. 1, but nonmath Q was my first instinct.)

How can the smaller iPod pack so much more information than the older one?

If this pattern continues, how thin will the next generation of ipod be?
