Apple has announced it will be pulling the plug on the final iPod Touch series after over 20 years of iPods being in production. Some of you may be wondering how it's taken the company this long, and some believe it's about time. 

We all knew it was inevitable for Apple to eventually stop creating the iPod, but for those of us who grew up with these devices, it doesn't hurt any less hearing of its retirement. Starting to feel old yet? So am I – and the legacy of Apple's iPod is only a few years shorter than my own age.
