  • The new Shuffle... same price... half the size!


    Apple has introduced the new iPod shuffle which is half the size of the pervious model....smaller than a AA battery! One new feature added is VoiceOver,2 which gives it the ability to speak to you in 14 different languages including English, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish. It can tell you the artist name, song title and playlist names. The price is still $79 but now you get 4GB worth of storage!! You might be asking yourself with a smaller size does this mean half the battery life? No this is not the case as the battery still holds 10 hours of playback time. The new shuffle comes in silver and charcoal. It is on sale today so go out and grab one!

    Edit: The iPod is now controlled through the in line module of the earbuds as shown in the picture. The +/- buttons are for volume and the middle section controls track selection and pause/play depending how many times you "click it". This could be a huge draw back for people wanting to use aftermarket headphones with this device as your only other option is the Apple In-Ear Headphones with remote/Mic ($79).

      I ordered one but am now concerned that I am stuck using the mediocre head phones that come with it since they control the volume and song selection.

      I bought the new Shuffle and the In-Ear phones yesterday. I was extremely surprised at the sound quality of the in-ear phones. I own a pair of high end shure's ($199) and these give them a run for their money at a mere $79. I like the 4GB capacity as I can have my different playlist generas with enough to listen to . I give this the thumbs up.

      I agree, I picked up a Black one yesterday after work and Love it.. I have a 2nd gen Nano and a 1st gen iPhone and love them both, but hate using armbands at the gym.. the iPhone one isn't big enough for my arms.. and the cord on my Nano gets in the way alot... so a shuffle is perfect for me as it can clip on my shirt or tank top and I love the controls.. I used to use the mic clicker all the time on my iPhone at the gym to skip songs.. But however I am a little scared to lose the little Guy.. SO I figured as long as I leave the headphones plugged in all the time I can find it.. lol I mean for an extra $10 I couldn't see getting a 2nd gen shuffle... it looks almost like an apple Bluetooth.. if you like to work out and run a lot this is the shuffle for you.. very non-intrusive..I also used it when riding my motorcycle.. works nicely as I can't really control my other iPod or iPhone with gloves on, but with the clicker it's easy now.. I've already had 2 people at the gym ask me about it and couldn't believe an iPod could be so small..
