Time to mix things up. Meet iPod shuffle, the unpredictable new iPod. What will it play next? Can it read your mind? Can it read your moods? Load it up. Put it on. See where it takes you.

Random is the New Order
Welcome to a life less orderly. As official soundtrack to the random revolution, the iPod Shuffle Songs setting takes you on a unique journey through your music collection -- you never know what's around the next tune. Meet your new ride. More roadster than Rolls, iPod shuffle rejects routine by serving up your favorite songs in a different order every time. Just plug iPod shuffle into your computer's USB port, let iTunes Autofill it with up to 240 songs and get a new experience with every connection. The trail you run every day looks different with an iPod shuffle. Daily gridlock feels less mundane when you don't know what song will play next. iPod shuffle adds musical spontaneity to your life. Lose control. Love it.

Smaller than a pack of gum and much more fun.

DJ Your Day
If you favor cycling to a hip-hop soundtrack and snowboarding to a little electronica, Autofill iPod shuffle from a specific iTunes Playlist and roll. Download an album from the iTunes Music Store and listen to it in order before you Shuffle it into your collection. Or just drag and drop individual songs from iTunes onto iPod shuffle. With Play in Order mode, you manage the music. If things take a turn for the predictable, never fear. Turn iPod shuffle over, flip the slider to Shuffle and mix on the go.

Goes with Everything
iPod shuffle weighs as little as a car key and makes a tuneful fashion statement. Just throw the included lanyard around your neck and take a walk. Or run. Or ride. There's nowhere your skip-free iPod shuffle can't go, and with up to 12 hours of continuous playback time, it keeps going as long as you do. A neat little cap protects the USB connector, and those signature white earbud headphones tell the world you love to listen in style. You can even make your iPod shuffle splash-proof, arm-hugging, and longer-running with optional accessories. Ready for anything from a Transatlantic flight to a weekend at the beach, the iPod shuffle makes the perfect, low-maintenance pal.

Touch of Genius
Good things really do come in small packages. The controls on the iPod shuffle feel as intuitive and easy to use as those on every iPod model. Play, pause, skip, repeat, shuffle and hold at the touch of a thumb: The circular, ergonomic controls and one-click slider make it simple to listen without looking.

The Music Store in Your House
Add to the iPod shuffle mix with songs downloaded from the iTunes Music Store. Browse and preview more than one million songs, then buy what you want, 24-7, from the comfort of your Mac or PC. With the iTunes Music Store and iPod shuffle, you'll always have music at hand literally.

The smallest iPod yet, iPod shuffle fits neatly in the palm of your hand and looks just plain neat around your neck. Prepare to make friends and influence people when you wear it biking, hiking, snowboarding, dog-walking and anywhere else that could use a great soundtrack.

Download an album and listen to it in order before you Shuffle it into your collection.

That includes off-the-beaten-path spots where you may need to play, pause, move back, skip forward, shuffle and turn up the volume without looking. Luckily, iPod shuffle pays due respect to its elders with a thumb-friendly, circular control pad that puts the 'go' in ergonomic.

iPod shuffle makes syncing a piece of cake. Cupcake, even. Use the optional Dock to connect to your computer or just plug iPod shuffle directly into a USB port on any computer. Then drag and drop individual songs, Autofill your favorite playlists or Autofill your iPod shuffle with a random sampling from your music library. Since iPod shuffle automatically charges while syncing, it stays ready for your next adventure.

Very easy to load music into. sounds great.
Apple has done a great job reproducing the same high quality sound as in any iPod, which is much better than many MP3 players out there.
Ricardo Carreon Quinones
So I went to their web site for online support to try and get it fixed or replaced and they said that my warranty has expired!

This is an amazingly small version of an Ipod that can hold a fair amount of music (about 8-10 CDS or so) and play it back with the really great sound that Apple's much pricier Ipod players have. The great thing about an Ipod is that you can essentially load your CDs onto it though Apple's Itunes software and then use your Ipod to access the CDs or lists of songs you create from these CDs on your computer. The negative of the Shuffle player is that you basically load a batch of CDs or lists of songs from your computer and have pretty limited control on how you access them - either just shuffling though them on a random basis or skipping through them in order. Is this a bad thing? It depends on what you want. If it is a chance to have a good batch of songs to play through without a lot of need to select specific songs, it is great -- kind of like a super radio station that can play selections you want to hear, either randomly or in some basic order. If you want to create a music library in your pocket to easily select from a mix of songs, the Shuffle doesn't work well.

The unit is great when you want a mix of music (say for a plane trip or for a week of daily runs) or a program in a certain order (say a talking book). The unit is incredibly easy to load up (just plug into the USB port of your computer -- also charges here) and Itunes software is a cinch to use to import music from CDs (or purchase music files from Apple).

Given the price, it is (by the standards of Ipods) a good deal as a way of getting great sounding music in a small unit. It presents a nice alternative to a heavier and much more expensive Ipod -- good things as long as you accept its limitations.

I finally broke down and acquired my very first iPod (from a credit card rewards program) after my SanDisk MP3 player stopped functioning. Originally I was going to replace it with another SanDisk, but then decided on joining iPod nation. Even though the SanDisk had an FM receiver and a voice recorder, the primary use was MP3 playback, and even though they offered a good product for the money, it wasn't the easiest thing to navigate and use in a pinch. I figured millions of iPod users can't be that wrong, but I didn't yet want to get a more happening iPod with 20 gig memory, photo playback, or even a Mini iPod. So I went for the most entry-level Apple offers and hoped for the best. Honestly, it could almost not be any easier to use and enjoy. The iPod Shuffle is a great example of very good product design and user-friendliness. Granted, you don't get an LED readout of the tracks or any info, so you have to make do without that. No FM, voice recorder either (no iPods have that...yet). No equalizer or tone settings (guess you have to set that from your playlists when loading the files into the iPod). Those are not the worst of cons. The pros outweight them - great quality sound (then again I don't use those awful bud headphones, always use Sony MDR's on all portable CD/MP3/radio devices), real simple to operate and load tracks into the unit. Plus it's so lightweight and portable, if you wear it around your neck, it's like wearing an ID badge - you barely notice you have anything on you. The 'shuffle' of course is its big selling point - not that big a deal but it can produce interesting radio-station-ish results if you pick a certain set of songs for your daily commute or workout.Read more ›

Apple's iPod "Shuffle," released after a flurry of hype early in 2005, is a combination of many wonderful features with many drawbacks -- though it is up to the individual user and his or her needs that decides whether or not these drawbacks are serious.


1 - iPod "prestige" -- what this means is that you have the great feeling of owning an iPod -- a trendy device that many young people like to own, not only for its practical uses but also for the sake of having it and showing it off in public. "Look everyone, I'm using an iPod -- yeah, it's just the shuffle model, but still, it's an iPod which makes it a million times cooler than the other brands out there that might actually be better but they s^&k because they're not iPods..."

2 - holds tons of music -- sure, larger, more expensive iPods (along with larger, more expensive products from other manufacturers that aren't as trendy to have a product from -- ie, "I-river") hold more music and other material, but for all practical purposes, the +/- 110 song capacity of the iPod shuffle is adequate for most people's listening needs, unless they plan on being away from their larger source of music and won't be able to change or replenish the shuffle songs for a long time.

3 - cheaper -- of course, a hundred dollars is a hundred dollars, but still, if you lose your iPod shuffle or break it or have it stolen it won't be as heartbreaking as if you lost your $300 full size model. Also since it's cheaper you won't often think twice about taking it absolutely anywhere with you, or even getting a little careless with it sometimes.

4- you can store and transport other, non-musical files on it.
