superhook? wow, carabiners are super now! This is probably the best product of the bunch, but 20 dollars for a 4 dollar carabiner. Ouch!

The FM transmitter is neat but way too expensive.

I think that the car charger looks like a good accessory. I don’t know though, it is kind of expensive. I’ll wait until closer to my trip to buy that, by then, maybe there will be a competitor.

ok, i’ve never complained about over-priced ipod accessories before because i can see that there’s obviously money to be made there, but 12.95 for an 1/8” to 1/8” jack aux extension cable!? gimme a freakin break.

What’s with the four kinds of iPod shuffle shields when two of them don’t offer much protection and the other two being only slight variations on the same thing? Gah, all too expensive anyways.

Eh, all too expensive for me, but the AirPlay is cool…  Looks like it didn’t take them long at all to figure out how to pull audio from the USB.

I hate 3 packs. Sell me the one I want for $8 and be done with it. I need two,one for me and one for my girlfriend and the color I want is not in the same pack as the one she wants. So,it looks like we will have to wait another 2 years for #### to get his product out. :o(

Now, looking at that FM transmitter - what we have here is a gadget that connects to the port at the base of the shuffle, draws a line-out signal, and supplies a charging current.

Presumably, therefore, someone could actually make an adapter - with a shuffle socket at the top, and dock connector plug at the bottom, so that the shuffle can be plugged into the IMmini, or the TEN FlexDock, for example.

I think if someone were to make such an adapter, they would make an absolute killing.

As far as the skins, I’d wait to see who else comes out with them (####, Speck etc), and watch the prices drop.

why in the hell would they only make one black case then sell it in a group with pink and purple cases!? c’mon now!

What I’m looking for is a lanyard with buiilt in earbuds, or even better, a way to imbed my earbuds.

Shieldz or Bumperz would be okay for me.  Ship it here in the Philippines! Many happy iPod Shuffle owners would love to have those.  With all those color options, it’s a no-brainer.

Why did they pull the skin that covers the wheel? They had 3 skins and now they only have 2.
