The Internet also showed its potential as a source of entertainment. However, Internet users created a crisis for the music industry and the legal system by downloading five billion songs from various sources -- without paying for them. The problem perplexed music executives, the brightest legal minds and most computer scientists. However, Tony Fadell (BSE CompE '91) developed a solution. He created the iPod, an inexpensive device that can play music in a digital format, and he led the development of an online site from which music buffs can download any of 200,000 singles for 99 cents each. It was a technological and marketing triumph.
Fadell, senior director of Apple Computer's iPod, iSight & Special Projects Group, has created three generations of the iPod and the iSight Camera, a video camera for conferencing over broadband.
