perfect design, but be warned -- no Nike+ iPod compatibility,
This review is from: Apple iPod shuffle 2 GB Silver (4th Generation) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
Apple has a history of being slow to admit mistakes (how many years did we suffer through those hockey-puck mice?). The third generation of iPod shuffles was a mistake. I wanted to like them. I tried them out more than once but recognized that in practice, it was better to drag around even a Sony Walkman than the buttonless, screenless oddity that was the Shuffle 3rd generation.
So credit to Apple, they went back to the second generation model, which everybody loved, and just made it better. It looks great, it feels great, it has a nice clip. I got an early unit, which I use with Nike SHJ036 Flexible Earhook Headphone (White)s, which I find comfortable and which, crucially, have a short cord that won't hang down for me to trip over if the Shuffle is clipped somewhere on my shirt.
The one shame of this device is that, though it is perfect for running, it is not compatible with the Nike+ iPod running kit.
