Apple KB article: Identifying iPods
There are so many different models of iPods with differing iterations of software on them that it is tough to keep them all straight (even for a big deal Apple pundit like myself). Fret no longer, because this Apple KB article sets you straight on how to tell a first gen iPod from an iPod photo from an iPod mini.
That's not all, it also includes the most current version of the iPod software that runs on each model (this really illustrates Apple's strategy of releasing cool new iPod features but only letting the new software run on the latest models).
