Timing is everything

I felt stupid about not buying Apple stock as soon as the iPod came out (just like I feel dumb about not buying Nintendo when I first got the Wii). I bought the first generation iPod in late 2001 and thought it was fantastic -- finally, someone had done an mp3 player right (although how was I ever going to fill up 5GB?)

This graph from the WSJ shows Apple's stock price as it updated the iPods. If I had bought in 2001, the stock would have gone sideways until 04, when Apple released the iPod Photo (which I didn't think much of). Goes to show you.
