Apple is seeing a large amount of consumer interest in its second-generation iPod shuffle and is upbeat about the upcoming holiday shopping season. “Response to it has been tremendous,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s head of worldwide product marketing, referring to the new shuffle, which started shipping late last month. “We’re really excited about the holiday period.” Schiller did not provide any specific sales figures.

I was looking into this the other day, but found a strange thing happen the other day.

Saw one of these in the demo section of Best Buy, but somehow, the tip of the charger had broken off inside the shuffle,  rendering the unit unable to be charged.  I thought the little docking station and all would be a bit more sturdy than that.

Does the 2nd gen iPod shuffle also have a compatible ac charger with it at Griffin or somewhere?
