Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Apple Launches a New Music Device - The iPod

On Tuesday 17th October 2001, in Cupertino California, Apple Computer unveiled the iPod, a digital music player that can store 1,000 songs on its hard drive.

The product, the size of a deck of cards, was unveiled during an event at Apple's headquarters here.

The stainless-steel unit costs $399, has a 5GB hard drive, connects to a Mac using FireWire, includes a 10-hour lithium polymer battery, offers 20 minutes of anti-skip protection, and works with Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. It will be available Nov. 10.

"This is going to be the hottest gift this holiday season" for Mac fans, Chief Executive Steve Jobs said when he introduced the device.

Steve Jobs said the iPod offers three breakthroughs: ease of use, ultra-portability and its ability to sync automatically with iTunes. Apple's iTunes software is used for playing digital-audio files and burning CDs.
