I received the iPod as a Christmas gift a pretty nice gift too. I'm well pleased with it, much better than a pair of socks. The new iPod Shuffle is different from the original. The older type's where made of plastic but the new one has an aluminium skin, making it much more tougher. Bad Points
The shuffle as no display so you can't tell what tracks coming up till it's actually playing. You have to charge it through a docking system via the computer. A charger can be purchased separately (for around £7 pounds) It has a little flashing light on top which is also very confusing. Apple provide a card which explains what the little light is trying to communicate (we hope) The ear pieces aren't very comfortable you would think Apple could do better and make them a better quality.
Easy to use controls forwards, back, pause, play , volume control and bobs your uncle pretty straight forward no problems. The sound quality is excellent and the bass impressive. The itunes software isn't included but it can be downloaded from the web site. Integration is flawless too.
The Shuffle is small lightweight and very smart looking and has a clip on the back. This can be attached to your clothing and is great for people who like exercise. Ok for walking to the pub. The clip is quite secure fastens to your pockets sleeves etc.
The iPod shuffle is only available in a 1GB model. This should hold about 250 songs, which I think is quite adequate . It costs around £55, you can get cheaper players but I think it's worth the extra. It's small, sturdy good looking with a great sound and well worth the money. The shuffle is now available in five colours
