Apple has kicked of a new iPod shuffle giveaway for college students. “College life is random. We’re giving chance a chance and giving away an iPod shuffle every week through September 30, 2005. The iPod shuffle lets you carry your favorite iTunes and your essential files with you all over campus. So whether you are rockin’ the night away or pulling an all nighter, we want to give your life a random soundtrack.”

assuming the files are saved at 128kbps and they average out to be 4 minutes a song….

512 should hold about 8 hours
1gb should hold about 16 hours
