I love the Ipod Shuffle. I have very little time with my busy work schedule and the Ipod shuffle fits in perfectly. It’s light,compact,and very descreet. While Im sitting at my desk at work and need a break I just pull out my shuffle and get that extra little boost that I need throught the day listening to my tunes that I like getting away from all the office noise around me. I have recommended this product to all my friends at work and half of them have jumped on the Apple Ipod Shuffle being able to use it to transfer files and listen to music at work and the gyme while on break. You have to experience it for yourself. Don’t knock it till you try it !

Its lack of memory and lack of a screen will put people off and the price is too high compared too the other models

I think iPod shuffles are cool and useful because of their size, I just wish they had a screen. But I still want one really bad.
