Tony Fadell, Too

Tony Fadell on Twitter:

Coincidentally, 20 years ago today, Stan Ng (Marketing), Jeff Robbin (iTunes) and I pitched Steve Jobs the P68 Dulcimer project.

8 months later that project became the iPod.

I suspect the pitching for P68 took place on March 23 (a Friday), but (a) maybe those folks really were working six days a week, and (b) there’s no question Apple was truly firing on all cylinders in 2001.

Ng and Robbin are still at Apple. Ng has led Apple Watch product marketing since it debuted, and Robbin is still in charge of Apple’s Music apps (and I think apps like TV and Podcasts too — anything derived from SoundJam iTunes).
