The iPod is one of the things that really helped to make Apple into what it is today, the world's most valuable company. However, as popular as it is, the iPhone and other smartphones have more-or-less replaced the need to have a dedicated and portable computer so it's interesting to note that the iconic, Canadian rocker, Neil Young, is about to come out with his very own portable music player.
The new player will be part of a new music service, PonoMusic and it will offer its customers high-fidelity sound play back, which is something that no one else is providing that I know of. They claim that PonoMusic will be revolutionary because its mission is to restore the very soul of music - bringing the highest-quality of sound to discerning, passionate consumers, those who hunger to hear music the way its creators intended.
PonoMusic will offer an online music store (PonoMusic.com) and a playback device itself known as The PonoPlayer and, according to PonoMusic:
"Our goal was to offer the highest quality digital music available from all the major labels and build the world’s best sounding, easy-to-use portable music player. We’ve achieved our goal and we are excited to launch our Kickstarter campaign this week to invite music lovers everywhere to join the PonoMusic community and reserve a PonoPlayer for their own enjoyment," said John Hamm, CEO of PonoMusic.
The PonoPlayer will have 128 GB of memory which should be enough to store from about 100 to 500 high-resolution digital-music albums, depending on the resolution and length of the original recording. Memory cards can be used to store and play different playlists and additional collections of music. The cost will be $399 MSRP and is available for pre-order at a discount on Kickstarter.com as of March 12th, but alas I cannot find the actual link. Sorry!
In conclusion, PonoMusic is all about high-quality music and if your interested you can be put on PonoMusic's list here for more information when it comes available

Personally, I've noticed that some of the coolest tech seems to come from Israel including this mind-blowing holographic device, which I would dearly love to see Apple buy.
In conclusion, it's not known exactly what the Israeli prime minister and Mr. Cook talked about but, hopefully, it means that there will be even more co-operation between the innovative Israeli tech community and that of Apple's own innovative initiatives that will strengthen both.
