I used to have the Ipod Touch but after it unfortunately got wet I was left ipodless. I thought about getting another Touch but just so happened to receive one of these Apple Ipod Shuffles and I am definitely pleased with it.
At around $50, I think the price is pretty good. I have a little over 2 hours of music on it, with room to spare, so I think that's pretty decent.
One thing i like about it is that it has a clip so you can clip it onto your clothes or whatever else you want and don't have to worry about it falling out of your pocket and what not.
The shuffle is very small and very simple to use. You have the regular Play, Pause, and volume buttons on the front.
There's also a VoiceOver button function. If you press this you can hear the current track name and artist, press and hold and you can hear the playlist menu (press play/pause to select playlist, press twice to hear the battery status). I haven't used this very much but I have found it useful in some cases when I don't recognize a song.
You can play songs in order or shuffle them! There's also a little light which indicates battery life!
I think if you don't care about all the extras other ipods have (like the apps) and you want something at a decent price, the shuffle is great!
I used to have this but I have switched to the ipod touch. This little shuffle was great! Sometimes it's better to be surprised by what song comes next. This is also great for work outs since I can just clip it anywhere!
