image

Apple today announced that its new second-generation iPod shuffle will be available in Apple retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers this Friday, November 3rd. Announced at Apple’s “Showtime” event last month, the new shuffle is nearly half the size of the original model, weighs half an ounce and features an all-new aluminum design with a built-in clip. The new shuffle, which Apple calls “the world’s smallest digital music player,” offers 1GB of storage, which holds up to 240 songs, and is priced at $79. We reported yesterday that pre-orders for the shuffle began shipping over the weekend.

When I was in the Apple store in Toronto yesterday, someone phoned in to ask if they had Shuffles in stock, and a guy told the girl who answered the phone to tell her no, because they’re not allowed sell them yet. If they’re shipping from online, why not sell them straight away in the shops?
I was planning to get one, but Apple released that fix that unbricks my old 512MB shuffle so I’ll stick with that.

Hmmmmmm…I’m guessing it will take 2 to 3 hours before someone sues apple because, “the shuffles design lends itself to easily being lost between seat cushions and deep pockets rendering the product unusable, therefore representing an obvious manufacturing defect ignored by apple computer, inc.”

The FedEx guy just dropped off my Shuffle. Everything is as expected, though I noticed that the headphones are the old ones, not the new ones shipping with the newest 5G ipods. Not a big deal.
