What an iPod is and Does

This paragraph is about what an iPod is.  An iPod is a small, cool device that is about 4 inches in width 2 inches in length. And it holds tons and tons of songs like The Rolling Stones or The Beatles but maybe something a little bit in the future. But anyway I think they are cool so you should get one.
