Mix: NECC, $105 1GB shuffle, FeedBurner, Piper Jaffray

iPods and podcasting were popular attractions in Apple’s booth at the 2005 National Educational Computing Conference in Philadelphia this week.

Following a $20 price cut yesterday, Buy.com is offering the 1GB iPod shuffle for $124.99 with free shipping. A $10 off coupon and $10 mail-in rebate brings the price down to $104.99. [via DealNews]

RSS management company FeedBurner announced today that it will soon “provide the ability to enter additional podcast description data via our SmartCast service, which we will ensure gets delivered with the appropriate RSS extensions to iTunes, Odeo, and others.”

Piper Jaffray senior analyst Gene Munster said he sees yesterday’s announcement of updated iPods as “a mild positive for Apple’s MP3 player market share” and expects “more significant iPod related announcements in the Fall-05 timeframe.”
