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).

Teh VoiceOver is nice, but I still like having a screen and plenty of storage. I can't see myself ever buying a Shuffle. And, its TINY I'd break it or worse, drop it between the seats! I'd never find it.

It looks nice, but where are the controls? Am I missing something or are there no visible controls?
well that was a slap to the face. You have to have apples eraphones with a built in remote to control it. You can't use other earphones if you want to pause and actually control the device. Personally, I think they should have made the remote similar to the PSPs remote, where you connect the earphones to the remote, and the remote plugs into the device.

looks dope good for running or boarding and at 79 bucks it wouldn't b the end of the world to break it, I wasn't a big fan of the previous shuffles but since the iphone came out I didn't see a need for something like a 40 gig to carry music around, I mostly use pandora if I am going to carry a bulky mp3 player it's gonna b my iphone.
Thanks for the heads up

I hate apples headphones. you can not run with them in your ears. I will stick with my older shuffle.
03-11-2009, 09:39 AM #7
why would you need ur mp3 player to tell you the name of the song you saved in it
but still it is amazingly small

It looks sweet, kinda weird without the buttons etc, but clean and crisp none the less. You can't argue with the 4g Memory either.
I wonder if they'll be selling headphone with the volume adjusters cheaper now... I'd like that... especially if they are compatible with the iPhone. :-)
Just in case you just add a bunch of songs at once and you really LOVE one and really HATE another... You'll know excatly where to go to delete it.lol

It really would be a great addition to my useless collection of Apple products
Acquiring it is a MUST DO!

DX Never liked the shuffle. I couldn't stand not having a screen to look at. And now, not only does the Shuffle not have a screen, but no buttons either? WTF?Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?
If I helped you, be sure to press the Thanks! button over there ->
If I didn't, press it anyway.

Guess I missed it while moving too fast. :-( $79 bucks it is. I'll edit the previous post.

Shuffles are great for active people who don't need 160 gig bulky iPods. While I am fairly active, I need a screen so I can chose my own music instead of always being stuck on shuffle.

Is the life expectancy of the "new" earphones greater than three weeks now?
03-11-2009, 03:32 PM #17
This iPod would be very useful for going on runs or doing anything active. I personally like the small size and don't mind the no screen. The headphones are pretty cool too! I'd buy this if I had money to spare and just to use it while I run or something.

yes you can used this with the iphone but the volume does not work,pretty much just like the stock iphone headphones

I always found shuffles to be too small. This is one tech gadget that I think doesn't need any more downsizing.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.
