Before this, it was drawn on the computer like a typewriter. He even had an option of having different fonts. The reason he did this was because while he was in college he got bored with the font types offered. He took a class on calligraphy to help him figure out what fonts he liked.

Jobs saw how hard it was to actually find a downloading site that wouldn’t mess up your computer. He also saw how much money could come out of his own music downloading place. In April of 2003, the iTunes store was made. Songs sold for $0.99. In just one week of iTunes being used, over one million songs were sold. After this, Jobs introduced the iPod mini, iPod shuffle, iPod nano, and the iPod video. Today millions of iPods are still being sold
