Mix: Clear shuffle, Jobs, Super Tangent, MSN Messenger

Updated

One adventurous iPod shuffle owner removed the outer casing of the device and put it an Apple Sport Case to create a “clear” iPod shuffle.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs says he is not tied to the 99 cent download structure for iTunes, but that there’s no reason right now to offer other services such as a subscription option. “We’re not religious on this, but there’s no evidence people want [other models],” he says.

LuxPro’s Super Tangent iPod clone is apparently now in stores in Asia, with the 512MB model selling for 8980 Yen, or about US$85. Unsurprisingly, it’s packaged in a similar way as the iPod shuffle.

Terrill Dent has created an iPod skin for the Windows version of MSN Messenger.
