an ipod is a device that plays mp3's

an mp3 is a compressed music file

Well, the Apple iPod is more known to everyone. Now that the Ipod came out, everyone is going crazy over it. MP3 are not "cool" anymore. Plus, the iPod fits way more songs than an MP3 player.

when i was buying a mp3 it said mp3 ipod so i think an ipod is a mp3 but a mp3 is not an ipod
get it?
