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.
| ||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
Touch of Genius
The Music Store in Your House
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.
Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.Read more ›
