the player aint nothing new either.
I wouldn't call it an invention...but the fact that Apple managed to sell the concept to the record labels, musicians, and consumers is quite a feat. Nobody else has it together, across the boards, the way that apple does....they've got marketing hype, solid technology, and a business plan(use iTunes to sell iPods).
It's still not the "invention" of the year, though.
