According to a New York Times article, Apple’s iPod was developed in just six months — faster than any major product in the company’s history. The device was created by a 35-member team of designers led by Tony Fadell, an engineer who had worked at Apple spinoff General Magic, at Philips Electronics and briefly at RealNetworks. In the late 1990’s, Fadell tried to start his own company, Fuse, designing consumer electronics products. When Fuse failed to get financing, Apple hired him as the senior director of the iPod and other special projects.
