A decade of iTunes in a timeline

Image from 9to5Mac

There are plenty of great timelines and timeline creation tools available on the internet. Schools use them, kids love them and we all learn from them. History is given a fantastic visual platform to work its magic. So when I saw this timeline from iTunes today I immediately added to my Springpad and have shared it with a few teachers already.

iTunes changed the face of music, there's no argument there whether you like the app or not. Apple have created a fantastic timeline of the iTunes platfrom from its official launch back in 2003 up to the present day. It includes notable dates in each year and, of course, links to the top 10 selling songs of every year since its launch. 

The information provided is easy to use in a classroom and would give children a great starting point to create timelines that are not just based on wars, kings and queens.

Check out the timeline by visiting this link which will open in iTunes itself.
