Just wait a few months and you may change your tune, I had a first gen iPod shuffle, and now I refuse to buy another apple product, EVER!
The thing stoped working about 5 months after I bought it. I would insert it into my USB port, and it not a single computer would recognize that I had put in a device. I tried atleast 20 different machines in my computer lab at college. I contacted apple, they said it was an HP product since I had the PC compatible shuffle. Low and behold, it said HP right on the back. I hate HP too by the way. I contacted HP to get it fixed or replaced, and they didn't do a thing about it.
Moral of the story, no more iPods for me, and I vow to tell everyone my story.
I am not a big Ipod fan and I hate Apple accept for their Macs. iTunes sucks and much more, but I love the shuffle. I have one myself and also a 30GB Creative Zen Vision M and it is a perfect combination. 🙂 When I need to work out I use the shuffle, but when I am just in school or walking home or something i use my big one. 🙂 Nice review BTW!
I was never in this mp3 gadget stuff.I do not know what is the deal listening on the streets,without being very attentive on what happens on the street
I've seen that Apple concentrates more on the exterior look of their gadgets/macs than on their functionality
Just look at their Macbook and Mackbook Pro line.
The Macbooks are built with junky components, and the Pro's overheat if you try and play more than an hour of Half life 2.
Personally I don't listen to music that much when I am away from my computer, however if I need an MP3 player, I could look into getting this shuffle.
