Apple introduced the first iPod on October 23, 2001; In other words, it has been almost 20 years since iPods entered our lives. As such, the idea came to mind whether Apple would release a new iPod to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
A designer named Andrea Copellino brought this idea to life and created a concept called iPod 2021. A great design has emerged as the sides of the device are made of stainless steel and the back is glass for wireless charging.
Copellino says that he also made changes to the software in the design he revealed; because the original iPod’s software is quite old. One of the most striking aspects of the design is the absence of any headphone jack on the device.
As of 2021, AirPods have become quite common. It seems quite natural that an iPod that emerged in such a period does not have a headphone jack. However, it is not difficult to guess that if this designed iPod were actually produced and put on sale, it would not be sold with AirPods.

South Korean technology giant Samsung can bring the foldable screen technology it uses in smartphones to laptops. Although the logo of the concept product was leaked by a Twitter user, the fate of the product is not clear at all.
The future of the foldable screen technology we see in Samsung smartphones looks bright. As this technology of the South Korean giant continues to take place in the market, more devices can have foldable screens; This includes laptops.
The first news about the foldable laptop comes from a Twitter user named Ice Universe. The user, known for his leaks, shared an image with the “Galaxy Book Fold 17” logo on Twitter. Although the logo appears to have been snatched from Samsung’s website, the user did not give any explanation about the source.
Normally, leaking a product’s logo doesn’t mean much, even if it comes from someone experienced in the leak. However, Samsung showed several foldable concepts in an advertisement it showcased in May 2021, including a 17-inch laptop with a large foldable display instead of the usual screen-to-keyboard layout.
Starting as a tablet and folding into a laptop form factor, this concept laptop is unlikely to become a real product. However, fantasy laptops are more likely to fail, especially if they don’t have a keyboard. Maybe the Galaxy Book Fold 17 is an Android tablet, not a laptop. Maybe it will never be released.
