Who'd have thought a music-listening revolution could come in such a sweet, compact package? Apple, again, leads the charge with the new iPod shuffle, a digital audio player about the size of a pack of gum, that mixes things up with the new random "Shuffle Songs" play mode. The iPod shuffle serves up the songs you've selected in a different order every time. Or, when you want to assume DJ duties, switch back to Play in Order mode. Carry about 240 songs, thanks to 1GB of storage, and enjoy up to 12 hours of continuous playback per battery charge. The shuffle supports MP3, MP3 VBR, AAC, Protected AAC (from iTunes Music Store, M4A, M4B, M4P), and WAV files. It's USB 1.1 and 2.0 ready and has an integrated USB connector. Includes earbud headphones, lanyard and USB cap. System Requirements: iPod for Mac requires a Macintosh with built-in FireWire and Mac OS X v10.1.5 or later (Mac OS X v10.3 recommended). iPod for Windows requires a PC with built-in FireWire or USB 2.0 port or a Windows-certified FireWire or USB 2.0 card and Windows 2000 (Service Pack 4) or Windows XP Home or Professional. Available storage capacity may vary. Imported. 3-1/3Hx1Wx1/3D".

Review: The unit is small and light. The case is clean and the use of buttons is efficient. It hangs on my neck with no noticeable weight. Manipulation is easy, functional and fast enough. It holds plenty of songs and is easy enough to swap songs using the iTunes interface. It sounds very good and the volume manipulation occurs in small intervals, which means I can set it to my exacting taste without big jumps in volume. I do wish it had a grip of some kind on the on-off button. I'll stick something there; enjoy.
Note: I don't use Mac. I don't like the lock-in issues with the AAC format. I'm not happy that I can only import to iTunes and not export to MusicMatch or WMP or other player programs, but that about the program not the product. I point this out so as to help you consider the validity of my review of the iShuffle by itself. END
I bought the shuffle for the following reasons. I wanted something small and something I wouldn't freak out about if I dropped it. The shuffle met both of those criteria.
For me it holds 13 hours of music, which is more than enough for the gym and it comes with a lanyard so I can wear it around my neck. Yeah, you look a little dorky with the thing around your neck, but it's great for cardio and for weight training. The headphone cord never gets into the way when I'm lifting. I also use it when I'm boxing and hitting the heavy bag. Again, it doesn't get in the way. There are armbands available for it as well, but I'd give the lanyard a try before spending the money and see if you like it.
I'm not at all bothered by the fact I can't see what track is playing on a screen mostly because I'm using it at the gym and I rarely looked down at the screen of my 40gb ipod when I worked out with it. It's simple to use and it connects through my laptop's usb port when I want to change the music on it and charge it. The battery lasts a long time. If I charge it once a week (and I'm using it every day) it's a lot.
If you need something with a screen spend the money and get a nano. If you don't care about that and just want your music portable this is great. I do think it's better for people who are going to the gym or running or doing any activity with it. It seems perfectly suited for that. I don't see people being happy with this as their primary MP3 player.
I received my iPod Shuffle, about five weeks, afters its introduction, so I have been using it, for over seven months. I should point out that I already had a full size iPod, but I wanted the shuffle, for its small size and extreme portability.
The shuffle is incredibly impressive, when you first receive it. Its tiny size and light weight really strikes you as unbelievable.
The shuffle charges and syncs to your iTunes library by USB 2.0. Charging takes about three hours, if you want a full charge, and the syncing of songs is pretty fast. You can have the shuffle select the songs randomly from your iTunes library, or choose your own custom mix.
I find the lack of display on the shuffle to not be an issue. The reason being is that this shuffle holds about 240 songs, so there really isn't a need, for a display. After all, who wants to be looking at a tiny display? I just want to listen to my music. You can have the shuffle play your songs in the order you setup in iTunes, or have it mix things up, with a random shuffle.
The shuffle has been reliable over the past six months. It still works great, looks great, and the battery still lasts close to the specification 12 hours.
Overall, I still use my full size iPod, for the majority of the time. However, when I want extreme portability and something that is not weighing down my pocket, I use the shuffle. It is also nice to use, if you're going to be an environment where you're concerned about damage or theft to your iPod, since the shuffle is less expensive. The iPod Shuffle makes a great second iPod, for iPod fans. However, it makes a great first and only iPod, for many people too. The iPod Shuffle brings the convenience of having any song (up to approximately 240 on this model), from your iTunes music library with you, wherever you go. Music makes life a lot of fun, and this shuffle helps bring the music to you.
