Following today’s introduction of the expanded color options and a 2GB model for the third-generation iPod shuffle, Apple has removed the option to purchase a second-generation shuffle from the player’s online store listing. Previously, a small link notifying customers that the 2G shuffle was still available could be seen at the bottom of the page; it is unclear whether Apple was continuing to sell the older model to address concerns over…

5 Stars Shuffle Ipod
I love this product and now can’t imagine exercising without it. It’s easy to start and work. it’s totally awesome
5 Stars Great
Great for what it is. No screen, so you have to arrange things the way you want them before you upload. It bookmarks tracks where you left off, which is perfect for listening to podcasts or books on tape, which is what I use it for. Great gadget for the price.
4 Stars cute basic for an old fogie
This is my first iPod and I am enjoying the heck out of it! It’s easy – easy – easy.
Next purchase will be to upgrade the ear buds for a bit more comfort. Sound is very good. Having a soundtrack for daily life…priceless.
3 Stars functional once u get past the setup
So I buy the shuffle because it is wicked small, figure it will have the same simple drag and drop setup that the ipod has. Well, i come to find that loading music is pretty annoying, and slow. Music has to link up to the music loaded on you iTunes library which is annoying if i move some of the music around. when I want to delete music from the device agian, its easier to write down what songs you want to delete because doing it one by one will take far too long.
The device works fine, as would be expected from an apple product, but in comparison to what I’m already used to (iPod) the loading and unloading process is slower and as a result annoying. Other than that, once its good to go, its great for working out, small, practically weight less, unobtrusive. If there was another procut out there that was just as small , i would probably not get the ipod, but given that there isnt one as small, ill have to stick to this one for now.
