The answer to this question depends on who you ask. Some say the word iPod is made up and stands for nothing at all. Others say it's an acronym. Still others say it's a reference to the movie 2001 (the same year the iPod came out).
I’m inclined to believe that the letters don’t stand for anything at all. After all, Apple has never treated the word "iPod" as an acronym.
Still, people all over the world like to speculate about what the letters in iPod stand for. If you’ve got an idea, click the Readers Respond link below and add your guess.
